Damien Peck is currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts, having completed a major in Photography in 2012, and completing a major in Journalism, Media and Communications this year.
Damien has strong interests in key themes from past photographic series including night, space, abandonment and isolation. This has led him to capture the darker spots of Hobart over the past few years. The ideas including emotional ties and physical tension are often captured in place of the scene.
He has also been involved with a lot of live music photography, having recently been shooting at Falls Festival, MONA FOMA, 10 Days on the Island, and various local shows. Last year Damien won the Honda Foundation People’s Choice Award at the Menzies Institute of Research exhibition (with the photograph, Waterwings) amongst some of Tasmania and Australia’s most respected artists.
