Degrees comprises large-scale photographs in various forms made by Odette England during and in the aftermath of the Australian bushfires of 2019-2020. England spent six weeks photographing in one of the fire zones and collecting buckets of ash, which she rubbed into the surfaces of her prints. The works speak to loss; the fickle and uncontrollable nature of fire, the urgency of change, and of how we learn, forget, remember, and persevere.
Odette England (Australian/British, 1975) is a permanent US resident and lives and works from New York and Rhode Island. She uses photography, sculpture, collage, performance, and writing to explore themes of land, gender, and ritual. Work from Degrees is nominated for this year’s Prix Pictet, the world’s leading prize for photography and sustainability.
The Center for Fine Art Photography is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit, promotes the art of photography by supporting the growth of diverse creative artists through exhibitions and educational programs.
