Lisa Sorgini (b. 1980, Adelaide, Australia) is a practising photographic artist currently based in Northern New South Wales (Bundjalung Country) Australia.
Lisa is interested in making work that is authentic to the human experience, and portraiture that is an inquiry into the honesty and vulnerability of the relationship between artist and subject, the two forever bound together by the final work.
Working with natural light, she creates portraits that are unguarded and sensitive, with rich textures and a painterly aesthetic. The candid nature of her work allows her to communicate with sincerity, revealing moving insights into our relationships with loved ones, our environment and our society.
The mother of two sons, Lisa has built a large body of work around exploring the maternal relationship. Her photographic observations and considered projects have been published worldwide, with recent notable features in The New Yorker, TIME Magazine and National Geographic . Lisa has been selected as a finalist in the 2019 Olive Cotton and Iris Awards, and semi-finalist in the Head On Portrait Prize (2020 , 2019) and Moran Portrait Prize (2016).
