Victoria and Doug in the outback

Victoria Cooper and Doug Spowart are visual artists working in the fields of photoimaging, books as art, cultural research and education. They have collaborated on many art projects and exhibitions featuring their photobook and artists books, their Nocturne projects as well as  their room and car camera obscuras. Their work was included in Dr Anne Marsh’s publication, ‘Look Contemporary Australian Photography Since 1980′.

They have been part of the Core Artists program at a Ballarat International Foto Bienale and have participated in Artist in Residence and visiting artist programs at Muswellbrook Regional Art Gallery, Grafton Regional Gallery, Bundaberg Regional Galleries, Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon and the Environmental Studio of the Australian National University.

Doug’s PhD researched the photobook in the digital age and Victoria’s PhD related to artists’ books and the presentation of sense-data in art and science contexts.

Both Cooper and Spowart are well known for their field work in the Australian landscape and their advocacy for the regional artist through their Centre for Regional Arts Practice.

Spowart and Cooper have had work published internationally in the Pinhole Resource Journal, Photo Poche and Eric Renner’s Rediscovering a historic technique: Pinhole Photography. In 2007 a body of Camera Obscura work was a finalist in the Australian national LEICA CCP Photodocumentary Award.

Both have lectured in Australia and New Zealand on the topic of the photobook and artists’ books and their book have been purchased for the rare book and manuscript collections in the State Libraries of Queensland and Victoria, and the National Library of Australia.

Engagement in Social Media has become an important part of the arts practice.
