Fine art photographer

Marla Bishop (they/them) is an agender, disabled fine art photographer based in Boorlo, WA.

Marla is known for meticulously planning each concept and using advanced post-production techniques to take their work to a higher level of creativity. Their creative practice is collaborative, consisting of their composited fine art portrait photography being enhanced with visual art techniques such as digital illustration, fx elements, and painting by fellow LGBTQIA+ and/or disabled artists.

Marla aims to celebrate the voiceless through their artwork. They work with people from the LGBTQIA+ community to produce inclusive and collaborative work to promote visibility and awareness of those who are marginalised within society. Marla’s work also promoted disability advocacy in order to give opportunities to disabled people to become a work of art and have their stories told in a visually expressive way. Their artistic purpose is to give the disempowered the mean to be seen authentically.
