Wednesday Sutherland is an Australian artist and photographer primarily working with 35mm. Currently living in Newcastle, she was born in Sydney in 1992, and has also lived in Melbourne, the Illawarra, and on the Mid-north Coast of NSW.
Wednesday's photography explores a bleak, yet recognisable, Australian reality. Having spent most of her life in the (comparatively) more densely populated south-east corner of Australia, her work focusses on the familiar idiosyncrasies that permeate the built and natural environments there. Street scenes are treated like landscapes - devoid of people and more concerned with atmosphere than subject matter.
Wednesday's collaborative and commercial work has allowed her to cover events ranging from music festivals to fashion runways. In this capacity, her eye has been noted for its intimate, personal take. Her images and illustrations have been seen on book and album covers since 2009.
Wednesday is currently studying a Bachelor of Communications (Media Production) at the University of Newcastle.
