2018 Australasia's Top Emerging Photographers: Documentary / Photojournalism, Winner
Even as a child, Rowena Meadows remembers being driven by intense curiosity to understand peoples’ stories. Her interest in human behaviour led her to become a psychologist. Although no longer working in this field, her innate desire to make sense of individual and relational behaviours is evident in the style of her documentary work. Based in Melbourne with her family, Meadows has been shooting whole-day documentary sessions with families for the last three years. She placed second in the Documentary category for Capture magazine’s Top Emerging Photographers in 2017.
Category prize: $450 plus a full-day studio hire at Dragon Image, including RED 8K camera, lens, and lighting equipment hire, valued at $2,500.
