Lisa Garland

About

Lisa Garland lives and works on the north west coast of Tasmania. She is a photographer who specializes in large scale, silver gelatin portraits. For fifteen years Garland has documented the lives and homes of interesting and often eccentric locals through large format portrait photography. Moody and sympathetic to detail, Garland’s evocative black and white images are a far cry from the average studio portrait.

Garland completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Tasmanian School of Art in Hobart in 1992 followed by a Diploma of Education. She has been shortlisted for a number of awards including the National Photographic Portrait Prize, the Hobart City Art Prize and Tidal: the City of Devonport Art Award. Garland won the Moorilla Prize in 2007 and her work is held in private and public collections, including the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, the University of Tasmania, the Burnie Regional Art Gallery and Museum of Old and New Art.
