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. Street scenes are treated like landscapes - devoid of people and more concerned with atmosphere than subject matter. Borderline abstract compositions focus on the motifs of both the natural and built environment.

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 Creative Industries (Visual Arts) at the University of Newcastle.
