Georgia Metaxas is a photographer, artist, and educator with over ten years of experience as a photographic educator and fine art photography teacher. She has worked alongside schools, universities, galleries, museums and community organisations to produce commission-based projects with public outcomes.
With portraiture at its core, Georgia’s photographic work sits within a documentary framework, examined predominantly through universal rituals and gestures. Her work employs a considered and deliberate approach, a conceptually inspired rendering drawn from the chaos of reality. Georgia’s has been exhibited internationally in Australia, China, Spain, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Residencies include the Fundacion Botin Residency Award facilitated in Spain by photographer Paul Graham, 2011 and FATHOM15, artist in residency at Four Corners in London UK, 2015. Georgia has also worked commercially for a diverse range of clients including Fairfax Media, Pictet, East London NHS Foundation Trust, English Heritage, Film Australia, The Immigration Museum of Australia, SBS Radio & TV.
An important part of Georgia’s practice has been connecting and involving the participants in her projects. She has worked with a diverse range of participants and age groups, from teenagers both in and outside of mainstream education to sixty plus photo enthusiasts and university students. Projects have resulted in high-quality learning and creative outcomes including technical knowledge, personal development, exhibitions, screenings, and publications.
