Australasia's Top Emerging Photographer 2021
Born and raised in Melbourne, Carole Mills Noronha is a mother of two, a passionate photographer, and an educator. With a background in visual arts, she did not truly discover photography as a need to express the world around her until the sudden death of her mother in 2013. Realizing the permanence photography has, along with a strong desire to record her family, Noronha began focusing on the family home she grew up in and creating more memories. As a photographer, she aims to create honest, tender, raw, and intimate photographs that are created from a place of love, respect, and the need to tell another’s story.
About the series
"A series of mine using original 1970 photographs and sitting them in the same locations decades on. A project to create more memories of the house I grew up in. The house was a family home from 1965 until it was sold in 2019."
