Robyn Beeche. Born 1945 in Sydney, Australia spent five years working with two professional fashion photographers, Grant Mudford in Sydney and Harri Peccinotti in London from 1971 to 1976.The National Gallery of Australia in Canberra has a collection of 50 of her uncommissioned photographs which explore a decade of change in London in the Eighties being expressed by various artists and which have become historic. Her images are often inspired by artists as diverse as Arcimboldo, Vasarely, Picasso and Dali and feature elaborate and surreal make-up effects.The interesting and most important aspect to consider when viewing her photographs is to realise that there has been no retouching or digitilisation of the photographs. They were created in camera before Adobe Photoshop existed. The make-up, body painting and hair styling would have taken many hours to apply.
