Jody Haines is a photo media artist (stills, projection, video) based in Melbourne.
Her work focuses on Identity, representation and the female Gaze, exploring ways visual language can be applied through video and photography to deconstruct/breakdown ideas of gender and the representation of Women. The work places women front and centre of the frame and creates an opportunity for Women to be seen, not as an object but as an individual; strong, beautiful and complex. Jody has exhibited widely including Sydney Festival 2018, Gertrude Street Projection Festival 2017, Ballarat International Foto Biennale 2017, Immerse 2017 and Women of the Commonwealth Festival 2018. Most recently Jody was commissioned to create a projection work for Festival 2018 and Women of the Commonwealth, Commonwealth Games Gold Coast.
