Naarm / Melbourne-based Aaron Christopher Rees’ photographic practice explores the mobilisation of vision through the internalisation of the camera and the ubiquity of the screen. Generating work through process-based photographic and structuralist video techniques of making, Rees graduated from the VCA in 2015 with honours and has been the recipient of a number of prizes, amongst them the VCA Emerging Artist prize, The Blair Trethowan TCB Art Inc Award and the Orloff Family Charitable Trust award. Rees has exhibited internationally and interstate, with recent exhibitions at Incinerator Gallery, First Draft (NSW), Channels Video Art Festival at Federation Square, Sutton Gallery Project Space, Visual Bulk (TAS), Bus Projects, Space Space Gallery (JPN), West Space, TCB, and Grey Gardens Projects.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
