Abigail Varney is a portrait and documentary photographer based in Naarm (Melbourne), Australia. Working in book form, print and installation her work predominantly evolves from her curiosity and connection to Australia’s land, people and ecology. Exploring the the vivd extremities that connect our experience with climate, isolation and resilience. Her work is more recently moving back closer to home, influenced by the intimacy of her family archives. This new direction reveals stories that centre her social community guided by a personal point of view.

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.
