“Dawn Roe’s photographs of her daily surroundings are relevant and fresh in terms of expanding ideas of how photography can work as a vehicle for exploring experienced and recorded time. She forms part of an important contemporary dialogue with others exploring lines of thought on time and sequence. The images also reflect a sense of intimate investigation and prolonged observation, relatives of the Southern archetype of time slowed, creating a link between her practice and where she works.” — Tom Griggs, Photographer and Editor of fototazo
Editor’s Note: Dawn Roe was selected for inclusion in our 2 Year Anniversary edition by juror, Tom Griggs. You can view a selection of Roe’s photography at her website dawnroephotography.com.
"The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, — all in one." — John Ruskin
