michell guo > not without soul

It was almost inevitable that Michell Guo would have an artistic bent.

Born in Beijing to an artist father and actress mother, Michell was immersed in classical music and fine arts through her childhood years and was formally trained as a concert pianist.

Moving to Melbourne in the early 1990’s from a foreign country resulted in the inevitable language barrier.  It was during this period of adjustment that Michell learnt to rely on her non-verbal senses, expressing herself in pictures with a simple point-and-shoot camera.  It was during her architectural studies that Michell’s passion for photography blossomed.  In 2008, Australia and the GFC crossed paths and she suddenly found herself unemployed with a bruised confidence and unsure about the future.  At this point, Michell truly immersed herself in photography.  She packed a digital SLR camera and left for Japan to find herself… 

The ‘eye for detail’ inherited from her late father and no formal training in photography resulted in a refreshing and sensitive approach.  Years of classical still-life, life drawing and oil painting combined with strict architectural training have given Michell an innate ability to find the ideal composition, angling and lighting to sublimate any subject matter. She is able to quickly hone in on the soul of an image and turn it into a reflective, meaningful piece of work that evokes feeling and thought from the viewer.

This exhibition documents Michell’s time spent standing at the crossroads of life and is a tribute to her late father.

I first saw your work and heard a new story about you. When I looked carefully at each picture, I found I liked the angle, the colour and the feeling to me. It is wonderful. I look forward to more accomplishments from Michell. Congratulations!
