The beauty of Zoe Wetherall’s work is in the structured geometry of natural and man-made forms – a natural fit for a little girl who wanted to be a bricklayer when she grew up. Wetherall, a New York-based photographer, recalls gazing at the pattern in a wall of bricks as a four-year-old daydreamer, and thinking: “I can see how that works. I could do that.”
Photography has been a part of her life for almost as long. She first picked up a camera at age eight, and has vivid memories of shooting at the family’s houseboat on Lake Eildon, two hours from her hometown of Melbourne, Australia. These days, she nurtures a design-conscious approach to her work, paying attention to the subtle patterns hidden in architecture and landscape, and using her camera to reveal their beauty.
