Alexandra Orme is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Photo Media) at the Australian National University.

My interest in photography grew out of the realisation I could never paint what I wanted to capture.  With photography, not only can I recreate what I see before me but I can also play with the images to produce my interpretations of what I see.

Although my process is chaotic, I try to produce works that are technically sound and have a typological feel to them.
I haven't yet found my artistic niche but I am particularly interested in capturing expression through portraiture. I feel portraiture focuses too much on the aesthetics of the person and because of this I am not interested in making my subjects look flattering. I don’t believe a whole personality can ever be captured in a single frame; therefore I am trying to grasp one moment of a trait that is particular to the person I am photographing. Read Less
