Meet the Maker is a series of casual conversations taking place at PHOTO 2024’s Photobook Weekend, giving audiences an opportunity to meet and network with artists and publishers. Photobook creators will showcase their latest projects, sharing insight and answering audience questions.
Artists Honey Long and Prue Stent will introduce their first photobook Drinking From The Eye, published by PHOTO Editions (PHOTO Australia / Perimeter Editions). Bringing together over six years of previous and never before seen works, Drinking From The Eye takes the form of an abstracted visual diary, presenting a combination of constructed photographs and detail shots that emphasise the artists’ attention to form, texture and material. Often referencing historical representations of the female subject, Long and Stent distort and fragment their bodies, creating creaturely hybrids in a constant state of becoming and flux.
