Australian-bornJustin Cooperhas been shooting fashion and beauty professionally for five years. Known for alluring and engaging beauty images, Cooper’s personal work is an exploration of the face as a portal that resonates the inner condition.
“I prefer the sitter to be passive to the camera, or caught in its gaze.” Using the face as a tool for narration allows Cooper to probe, and authenticate, notions of beauty and to transform the editorial sphere into a medium for commentary.
Cooper studied art and commercial photography at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and later at the College Of Fine Art – Sydney. His images feature regularly in publications throughout Europe and Australia, with commissions including a 50-page editorial spread for Harper’s Bazaar.
