Dean West

Born in Australia in 1983, Dean West lives and works in New York City.

Designated as "one of the world's best emerging photographers" by Capture Magazine, West has made a name for himself with his highly conceptual and thought-provoking style. His body of work plays with multilayered states of consciousness through the silent dialogue between the elements West has meticulously arranged on stage, hence forcing imagination to overstep the frames of reality. While Fabricate settled in a mythology-inspired context, In Pieces investigates the identity of contemporary man within a society that dictates most aspects of his expected role.

 

ln 2008, West was included in Saatchi & Saatchi's collection of the world's top 100 emerging photographers. ln the following years, his series 'Fabricate' received worldwide recognition from top photography competitions, including : the International Colour Awards, the Lucie Awards, the Loupe Awards. In 2009, Dean was the winner of the IV International Arte Laguna Prize, Venlce, Italy; This final award being the most prestigious for ernerging artists with over 5,000 applicants gunning for the top prize in photography, sculpture and painting. Zoom Magazine quickly nominated Dean in the 'New Talent' issue of 2010 and the Magenta Foundation awarded him an emerging Photographer of Canada. Dean's body of work is now being collected by a growing number of sophisticated art collectors in North America and Europe.
