Yvonne Todd: 2019 Arts Foundation Laureate

Photographer Yvonne Todd won the inaugural Walters Prize with a series of ten photographs made in her final year of study. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and her major solo shows include Creamy Psychology, Wall of Seahorsel, and Blood, in its Various Forms.

Yvonne makes art because she is compelled to. Although she’s a photographer she sees the photographic process as almost beside the point. “It’s just a means of documenting what I’m setting up in front of the camera … I know how to take a photo and as long as that side of things are competent it’s all about the idea behind it.”
