The Street is Your Galleryis a solo show by Ingrid Shakenovsky, reflecting her passion for photography as art and art as photography
Ingrid Shakenovsky has been fascinated by photography since she commandeered her father’s old box camera in her teens. Around that time, she also developed a love for painting and drawing.
Ingrid went on to study teaching and art, launching a popular art school soon after she qualified as a teacher. She followed this with an almost 20-year career as a photojournalist and as one of Sydney’s most sought-after special-events photographers.
Now Ingrid is exploring her passion for urban landscapes. She uses techniques such as Intentional Camera Movement to make photographic art that resembles real life and turns coincidental collections of urban paraphernalia into photographic works that verge on the abstract.
