Street scenes and still life based on urban and country themes.

Influences or Philosophy

Viki’s photography has evolved into photo artistry, and her work is merging with street art illustration techniques. A lot of digital scrap booking influences are finding their way into her work. Not one to stick to one theme or style, her imagery can be defined as evocative and insightful, whether working in monochrome and colour photography or mixed media, she captures the essence of her subjects with a lot of feeling. Though influenced by the greats of photography including Ansel Adams and Steve McCurry – contemporary street art and music are huge inspirations and influences, particularly young emerging Australian songwriters.
