Cecilia Sordi Campos


Growing up in the countryside in Brazil, I got hold of a camera for the first time at age nine, after winning a contest at primary school. I took photos of everything and everyone. Unfortunately many of the rolls of film I went through were never developed. I still think of those never seen photographs. I am now a Melbourne based photographic artist and have been living in Australia for the past 15 years. My artistic and photographic practice are positioned in the field of socially-engaged art and expanded photography. My projects place value on ‘narratives of the self’ as resources for creating effective visual vocabularies to represent the complex psychological experiences of being-ness, relationship dynamics, womanhood and the female body, migration and identity. The aim of the projects is the seeking of strategies in the communication of these experiences within a public discourse.
