Her images embody the way she relates to the world – they’re candid, honest, fearless and warm; and they always manage to find the amazing in everyone.
Born and raised in Canberra, Kelly Tunney originally followed a traditional path, but after deciding that an office job and clarinet was not her way to fame and fortune (no, that realisation didn’t come on band camp), Kelly decided that photography was her way to be awesome, and it’s been her life ever since.
Her images embody the way she relates to the world – they’re candid, honest, fearless and warm; and they always manage to find the amazing in everyone. She secretly enjoys the rush that comes with the fear of pushing boundaries as far as they can be moved.
