Tristan Still is a multidisciplinary Australian artist whose work is driven by photography and personal relations. His subjects are often linked by a shared commonality of resistance to capitalist ideals and authority – those who fiercely challenge cultural normative behaviours, practices and expectations through their actions and identities.
Still graduated from the University of Western Sydney in 2001 with a Bachelor of Visual Communications (Photography and Digital Imaging), and has been actively exhibiting for more than 10 years – including a solo exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP). Other exhibitions include the Art Gallery of NSW (AGNSW), the State Library of NSW and the Tweed River Art Gallery.
Still has been published internationally in print and online magazines, and has been selected as a finalist in the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, the National Photographic Portrait Prize, the Head On Portrait Prize, the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize, the Olive Cotton Award, and the PCP IRIS Award.
The land on which I live and work is the land of the Gadigal and Wangal peoples of the Eora nation. Sovereignty of this land was never ceded. It always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
