New Zealand born, Melbourne based photographer Jeremy Blincoe’s dark and provocative works have garnered him awards in New Zealand, Australia and residencies in the US and Europe. His technically pristine, large format photographs are highly staged, created by digitally layering props and models onto extraordinary natural landscapes.

The complexity of these images and remote locations mean they can take weeks or even months to plan, stage, shoot and edit. Blincoe derives much of his inspiration from what he reads, gradually translating ideas into images, and he is strongly motivated by a deep concern for the environment. As a result, his work often presents a juxtaposition of the beauty and wonder of the natural world and the chaos and devastation humans have wrought upon it.

In the limited edition series of works called Wonder, the hyper-real settings, and the dense layering of signs and symbols, plunge us into a realm that hovers between the real and the imagined, the beautiful and brutal, and forces us to confront content that oscillates between innocence and something altogether more sinister.
