Welcome to The Random Image by Nadia Culph
Photographic artist Nadia Culph, skilfully manipulates and controls light. Her still life images are inspired by nature's curiosities and wonders. Keeping her composition simple, Nadia creates stunning photographs that aim to bring the intricate details of nature to the fore. They are a reminder to 'stop and smell the roses', to slow down and appreciate the little things.
Living in Melbourne's leafy suburbs,
Nadia takes inspiration from her local surroundings and Australia's native flora.
Intrigued by unusual patterns, striking colour and bold contrasts, she uses natural light to capture the unique design of her botanical subjects. Everything from Australian flowers and spring seed pods to tropical leaves and exotic feathers.
" In the age of highly sophisticated editing programs where photographs are heavily modified and transformed, I try not to alter the image to maintain as much realism as possible, to celebrate the natural design of my subjects and pay homage to their inherent beauty. The stark black and occasional white background holds the viewer's eye on the subject without distraction and keeps the image simple and uncomplicated."
With over 25 years experience in fine art photography, including 10 years in the technical field of photographic printing, Nadia's images have made their way to homes and businesses around the globe.
Nadia's artworks currently hang throughout BASScare Morgan Glen Iris & are soon to be a part of the new refurbishment of Rydges Melbourne. March '23 saw the opening of the newly renovated Sandstones Capella Sydney, a large art consultancy project with The Artling featuring Nadia's artwork alongside many talented Australian artists. She has worked with local interior stylists with her prints used in numerous property auctions & businesses. Nadia has also worked with international art consultants Peter Millard & Partners on large scale projects.
