About Hayley Roberts Photography
~ Art that delights and enthralls while beautifying your walls ~
As a child I was enchanted with the fairy tales my parents read to me, believing the world was full of magic and mystery. Through photography I bring to life the kinds of stories I adored in my youth. These are the stories that bend and break the rules of reality. Where magic is part of the fabric of the universe.
I am a self-taught photographer who uses trick photography and Photoshop to collage images of landscapes and animals into larger scenes, blending fantasy into the everyday, using characters, costumes, props and posing.
On my website I run the Exposing Illusions project to inspire and teach others the creative photography techniques I use to defy reality.
My work has been featured in publications including Bored Panda, the Huffington Post and Digital Photography School. My portraits have been finalists in the Heritage Bank Photographic Awards, MAMA National Photography Prize, Bowness Photography Prize, Brisbane Art Awards, Milburn Art Prize and Contemporary Art Awards.
