ABOUT

LJ L. J. LaBarthe is a local photgrapher who principally works in colour. Although this is her primary medium, L. J. also does some work in black and white. She prefers colour due to finding it more challenging to work with to create a mood. She also works in digital mixed media, utilising textures, gradients and stock to create new work out of existing photographs.


From a young age, L. J. has been armed with a camera and has always loved the art of photography. Her love of photography featured strongly in images used in her high school yearbook, her university newspaper, and, from her early teens to her twenties, a fanzine about the local punk rock music scene. She has often been seen photographing such local acts as Fear and Loathing, The Mark of Cain and many more.


From 2015, L. J. has become part of the women's photography collective called the Cut Snake Collective. With this group of highly talented women, L. J. is part of the collective's first exhibition, Edge of Insanity which is being presented during the 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival at the Exter Hotel on Rundle Street. The exhibition runs from the 15th February 2016 until the 14th March 2016. Works from all artists will be for sale. She is proud to be a part of this group and hopes that visitors to the exhibition will enjoy the pieces on show as much as the artists did in creating them.


L. J. is aditionally available for those wishing to have outdoor photography sessions in the Adelaide metropolitan and suburban areas. Please contact her if you are interested to discuss options and costs.


The following pages are a portfolio of selected works taken over a period of decades. Some of these works are for sale. Please note that L. J. also has an Etsy store in which some pieces and those in the exhibition will be listed. If there is a piece here on this website that is not listed in the Etsy store and you wish to purchase it, please email to enquire.
