Sonia Mangiapane (AU) is a photomedia artist working with media and processes defined primarily by their use of light, as opposed to the exclusive use of the camera. Employing a range of camera-based and cameraless methods her practice takes the form of photographic prints, cameraless or hybrid works on paper, and  moving image works. The colour darkroom in particular is a core site of her practice—it’s a space in which she makes, rather than take a photograph. Guided by a fascination with the physical properties and ethereal qualities of light Sonia's research interests include the tourist gaze, Nature and notions of photographic time.
