Experimenting with self-portraiture photography at a young age of 14, Amy Haslehurst has since utilised this as a tool to explore the internal landscapes of the human mind and create realities as a form of escapsism from anxiety and melancholy.With nine years of metamorphosis under her belt, Amy's latest work features hooded 'others' and interprets Icelandic folklore and the paranormal amongst vast and empty landscapes.
'Once you've stared into the void, it facinates you forever. If anything, I want to explore those feelings that most people repress, and represent those stories and subjects that can be considered as strange, uneasy, creepy or ignored. I want to shine my darkness into the light'
Amy Haslehurst is a 22 year old artist and photographer from Perth, Western Australia.
She holds a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts and Photography, and currently lives and works in Reykjavik, Iceland.
