Tajette O’Halloran is a practicing photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. She creates striking, atmospheric portraits that are unpolished, dark and ambiguous in nature. Tajette’s work has been featured in several Australian and international photography publications both in print and online including the New York Times (USA), Fine Line Magazine (France), The Modern & Contemporary Art (France), IGNANT (Germany), C41 Magazine (Italy) and others. Having studied film in Sydney, Tajette discovered her love of stills photography when she was required to buy her own camera while working as a location scout.
As well as being selected as a finalist in the Doug Moran Portrait prize, Tajette was awarded ‘honourable mention’ for the William & Winifred Bowness Photography Prize in 2016 for her image ‘idle ours’. She was also selected as the ‘Blow Up’ portrait category winner in 2014 for her image ‘gracie’ and was selected as the winner of the ‘Monster Children’ annual photography award in 2012 for her image ‘her against the world’.
