Tammy Law documents stories that are reflective of her experiences of being a child of Chinese migrants that sits within a space of Asian/Australianess. The differences between act as catalysts for her interrogation of transnational mobility (those who live between a place of home and homelessness, belonging and displacement) through her photographic practice. Law’s work explores the complexities of displacement and the emotional, psychological and physical dislocations that occur. Since 2007, Law has exhibited her work regularly across Australia and internationally. Law’s work was included in the Yangon Photo Festival in 2018. Her book Permission To Belong won the 2018 ANZ Photobook People’s Choice Award and in 2017 she was awarded a visual arts grant from the Australia Council for the Arts. Law acquired a PhD from RMIT University in 2018 and also works as an academic and freelance photographer with clients including Domain, The Wall Street Journal and Australian Traveller.

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.
