Tall Grass

Coast
J ules Campbell lives
in the very northern
part of Australia, nearer Papua
New Guinea and Indonesia than
in the small wild town of
Humpty Doo (no relation to
Dumpty) amongst “beer
swilling, fish mongering blokes
Sydney or Melbourne, but just in singlets and thongs, with
an hour from Darwin. She lives beards and motorbikes.”
www.discounderworld.com. jules campbell. page 15

She grew up in Dunsborough,


Western Australia, a town
google maps predicted it would
take some two days and three
hours to reach, but Jules says
with toilet stops and rests it
takes over five days to reach
from Humpty Doo. She says: “I
love it here but I also miss my
childhood town of
Dunsborough, but fear that
perhaps the only thing I really
miss is the memory of it.”

It is this longing and


nostalgia that Jules portrays in
her photographs. She uses the
“Through the Viewfinder”
technique hailing back to her
first Kodak instamatic camera,
which produced square images
with rounded corners to
connect her past and present.
Her subjects are romantic and a
nod to the immensity and
expanse of Australia.

“I am so content and at my very


finest when I am in the
landscape and miles away from
people and man-made things. I
have been this way since I was
a young child. I am interested
in the land and its stories and
I have a huge respect for my
country.”

Monet in the Park

Yesterday
“I remember being really
devastated by a red gum tree
being cut down in our school
yard when I was a kid and
there was nothing I could do.
So in a way every tree I take
a picture of today pays some Flame Tree
kind of homage to that
beautiful old majestic tree.”
www.discounderworld.com. jules campbell. page 19

“I wouldn’t
consider myself to
be a people
person at all, I talk
too much, worry
a lot and say the
wrong things most
of the time. My
photography is my
tool to
communicate my
feelings to the
world.”
Jules lives with her partner
Dobbo and their two-year-old
daughter, Elsey, who Jules
describes as her as her “partner
in crime”.

“We are together 100% of the

Things I like/love: My partner


of 13 years, my daughter, my
parents, my brothers and their
families. Australia especially
Northern Territory and Western
Australia. History, old things,
nature, art, painting,
photography, old cars, film and
shopping in op-shops (thrift
stores) and second-hand shops.
The feeling when I sell my work
to someone. I love gadgets of
any kind especially cameras
and old photographic processes
such as van dyke browns and
cyanotypes.

Things I dislike: cats versus the


environment, marketing versus
children, MacDonald’s,
Tupperware parties (as if there
isn’t enough plastic in the
world?) the unequal wealth of
the world, religion, wars,
leeches, cane toads and people
in the art scene that act like
pretentious wankers.

yrone paints in the


garage of his friend’s
house. People drop in
regularly, and having an
audience of admirers and critics
while he paints is something he
has become accustomed to.

“Even back while I was


studying, my studios always
became a gathering spot for
other students. Getting
constant comments on work in
progress is something that can
take getting used too, but hey,
I guess it’s getting me prepared
for the critics.”

Taking lots of photos is another


important process in the
creation of his paintings. A
normal painting will use over 50
different image references from
photos he has taken, and
others from sites such as Flickr
and Google images.
www.discounderworld.com. tyrone layne. page 29

“I am continuously thinking of
new ideas or adding ideas to my
paintings. The places I visit, a
festival or even just a new
fashion some cool kid is
sporting around town can all
provide inspiration. Being a
social guy I get out and about
and experience things first hand
and it is these experiences that
lead to my subject matter.”

Tyrone recently travelled


around The United States,
Barbados, Ecuador and Peru.
In America he was fascinated
by Venice Beach, where Bay
Watch was born. Tyrone found
this beach ideal for one of his
favourite past-times: people
watching. He roamed the beach
snapping photos of hundreds
of different strangers from all
walks of life.

He then moved onto Barbados,


where his father was raised.
Here Tyrone met up with
cousins, aunties and uncles,
who showed him the very best
of island life for ten weeks.

“Bringing a bag of oil paints and


a roll of canvas from home, I
set up studio while drinking
their fine rum. Eating and
drinking was high priority in the
afternoon proceedings.”
“‘Sea Princess’ is based on a
two week Caribbean Cruise we
took. This is set in the Cayman
Islands where the water was
beautiful, clear and warm, and it
speaks for all the lovely
beaches we stopped at through
the Caribbean.”

After the Caribbean, Tyrone


crossed over to Ecuador where
he met up with fellow Kiwis and
after three glorious weeks in a
surf-side hostel, they headed
into Peru.
www.discounderworld.com. tyrone layne. page 33

“We were lucky not to be killed


on our bus ride through the
mountains to Peru. Our bus
driver was an absolute maniac,
flying around the winding roads
nearly taking out oncoming
traffic, people flying side-to-
side in their seats! I had to say
a little prayer to the man above
and I know a lot of my friends
did the same.”

His adventures in Peru lead to


the painting ‘18 Kiwis in Peru’.
The painting is made from a
collection of memories and
photographs, and aims to
capture the chaotic pace of a
busy Peruvian city. There are
over 160 characters as well as
the Cruz Del Sur bus which took
them through the country.

“A valium pill brought over the


counter at a local pharmacia
helped make these rides more
bearable.”

here is something
very raw about Jill
Coleman and the
subjects of her
photographs that
shines through in her
images.

Africa in 1977, when
she was 14. During her
adult life she slipped
into the depths of
alcoholism and now six
years sober, she
credits photography for
saving her life and

to focus on. Through
documenting the
things around her,
photography helped Jill
understand her
feelings, addiction and
perspective on life.

“I never created anything


worthwhile under the influence.
Recovery can be difficult but it
has opened my eyes and made
my life worthwhile. I can
actually see and feel reality and
that is what you need to create.
Even if reality is harsh and
unrelenting, it is life and I will
not numb it out.”
www.discounderworld.com. jill coleman. page 77
"If there are
dreams about a
beautiful South
Africa, there are
also roads that
lead to their goal.
Two of these
roads could be
named Goodness
and
Forgiveness."

Nelson Mandela
Since March 2008,
Jill has been living
in Chicago. The city
has proven a huge
learning curve for a
farm girl from South
Africa. Jill has been
struggling with panic
disorder, a lay over
from her battle with
alcoholism, but says
the city has provided
her with friendly,
open people, willing
to be photographed.
www.discounderworld.com. jill coleman. page 53

Jill’s photography
focuses on people in an
exhilarating mix of South Africa
and Chicago, black and white.
She is influenced by light and
by real people, and gravitates
towards portraying poverty, the
needy and the reality of people.

This is effectively detailed


through her choice of using
black and white photography,
which not only highlights, but
also oddly neutralises her
subjects. Regardless of colour,
they are stripped back and
unmasked; enabling their
emotions and the trust Jill gains
in them to shine through
brilliantly.
