Carine Thévenau’s photography practice has a strong portraiture focus, exploring our lives both historically and reflecting upon who we are within contemporary culture. Honoured as a guest speak speaker at International Design Conference, AGIdeas and previously nominated by industry leader, Capture Magazine, for the Emerging Editorial Photographer of the Year Award, Carine Thévenau’s photographic work has appeared in such publications as Wallpaper, Rollingstone, iD Magazine, Vogue, Smith Journal and is a Senior Photographer at Frankie Magazine.

She has exhibited works at the Los Angeles Centre of Digital Art, Edmund Pearce Gallery Melbourne, Perth Centre Of Photography and has forthcoming works showing at Galerie Pavlova, Berlin, Germany. Her most recent solo show, “Return To Huldra’s Wood”, at Edmund Pearce Gallery evoked comment by Australian Art critics, including Robert Nelson from The Age and Professor at Monash University, Melbourne. Carine also contributed to the photographic book SPACES, which documents creative people and their surrounds.
