Jacqi Bartlett, Wellington, New Zealand Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I'm a mainly self-taught photographer who carries a camera almost everywhere. Lots of things inspire me: landscapes, buildings, lone trees against a dramatic sky, tiny flowers. I love colour and I love photographs which convey the essence of a place or the mood of an occasion. I am also a self portrait photographer.
I spent the first 50 years of my life living in England, mostly in London, and used that as a base to travel around Europe, Scandinavia, Russia and North Africa. After a 10 week road trip across the United States I have now made New Zealand my home. I hope to have another 50 years here.
