Photo sculpture creator Justine Khamara is based in Melbourne, Australia and is a graduate from the Victorian College of the Arts where she received a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) degree.

"Khamara’s practice to date has sought to disrupt photography’s smooth, two-dimensional surfaces by building sculptures and collages that are built entirely out of photographs." The artist transforms flat images into fragmented sculptures that form a large composition when arranged together.

These photo sculptures by Justine Khamara depict traditional photo imagery in an unexpected way. The artist's works often depict figurative forms or facial close-ups that are pulled apart into individual, linear elements.

When separate, the elements take on abstract forms but transform into puzzle pieces that create a bigger picture when arranged alongside one another.
