STEVEN MANOLAKIS is an American-born, Sydney-based fine art photographer. He first discovered his love for photography after moving to Australia at the young age of 18, where he began to develop and refine his own distinctive artistic style.
The intent of his artwork is to stimulate the affective components of his audience by permitting them to attribute personal meaning to each image. He believes art speaks to each person on an individual level, and does not wish to ascribe his own bias to his work.
Steven’s most recent creative compositions are concerned with the aesthetics of topography, particularly from an aerial viewpoint. The spontaneous and evolutionary arrangement of contours and hues which comprise earth’s geographical framework constitute the essence of his subject matter, and form the most mesmeric abstract illustrations.
