Caterina Pacialeo Photographer
My passion/obsession for photography started at an early age photographing everything and anything. Trying to capture or hold on to what is in the moment, unexplainable substance that is constantly changing and evolving. What am I looking for? I feel, hear and see things, and through these forms I create the image. I often refer to light. Without light there is nothing. Photography is all about light, and within light there is form and substance.

Bio

Caterina Pacialeo is a photographic artist living and working in Sydney Australia. Her work focuses on environmental portraits, representing people, places and diversity. Her photographic prints demand reflection on the mental conditioning of reality, dreams interactions and conformity. A fascinating blend of cerebral questioning, social observation and defined parameters - both physical and emotional, Caterina's work strives to inspire through representational conflicts between life and innate human needs.

Caterina graduated from the College of Fine Arts UNSW with a BA in Fine Arts 1989, and a Master of Art in Photomedia (2008). She has held solo exhibitions and has been a finalist, awarded and participated in several group exhibitions here in Australia and the USA. Caterina has in-depth technical skills, with the appreciation for quality and attention to detail in her work.

Caterina also conducts photographic workshops and private tuition.
