ABSOLUTION is a solo exhibition by Camille Sanson reflecting her personal journey into motherhood. Through their making and narrative progression, the photographic series explores the depths of the shadow and play between dark and light. Similar to the process of developing black and white photographs in a dark room, and metaphorical relation to conception and birth, the images transition from darkness and emerge with renewed existence in light. Camille recently returned to New Zealand after 16 years in London. She founded a successful photography studio in East London and for the past 12 years she has worked across fashion, portraiture and still life photography. 

Camille has produced campaigns and for brands including: Yves Saint Laurent Beauty, Max Factor, Rimmel, Kryolan, JOOP!, Finery London, Beau Coops, Zoe and Morgan, and also photographed editorials for Vogue Ukraine, Elle, Hong Kong Tatler, Glamour Italia, Remix Magazine, Glassbook, and Swarovski Magazine.

Part of the Auckland Festival of Photography 2020 Programme.
