Tamara Kenneally is an award winning, animal based photographic artist situated in Victoria, Australia. Tamara has an passionate interest in animal behaviour, animal rights and animal welfare which greatly influence her work. She has a degree in Media Arts (fine art photography) and post graduate qualifications in Animal Welfare.
Tamara has exhibited widely in both group and solo exhibitions around Australia. The way in which people view, use and relate to animals are examined in her bodies of work. She attempts to tell the stories of animals living in a human world.
Tamara's love of animals began when she was very young and her photography obsession blossomed not long after. At 11 years of age her beloved dog, Buddy, became her full-time photographic model for the next 17 years.
She hails from a film photography background and has a passion for creating her images within her camera, this means no cropping and very little post processing on her images.
Tamara hopes her audience walk away from her work with a new found respect and compassion for animals.
