Workshop: Photography-and-Media-Arts

Jacob Raupach is an artist based in Wagga Wagga, NSW, graduating with a Bachelor of Visual and Performing Arts (Honours) from Charles Sturt University in 2013. Jacob’s work is concerned with the relationships between industry, labour, history and failure; in particular, how photographs and objects can contribute alternate historical narratives and critiques of these intertwining systems. His work has continuously tried to address these issues through an examination of regional areas dealing with an ever-changing post-industrial landscape. His first self-published book, Radiata, won the 2013 Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive’s Student Photobook Competition, resulting in an exhibition at Colour Factory Gallery, Melbourne in 2014. He has recently exhibited at the Underbelly Arts Festival (Sydney), Centre for Contemporary Photography (Melbourne), Wagga Wagga Art Gallery (Wagga Wagga), The Photography Room (Canberra), Galerie Pavlova (Berlin), and Gaffa Gallery (Sydney) amongst others. The State Library of Queensland recently acquired Radiata for their permanent collection and he was selected as a finalist in the 2015 Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Photography Award. Jacob was also a recent recipient of the 2015 Artstart grant from the Australia Council of the Arts and the inaugural 2015 Young Regional Artist Scholarship through Arts NSW.
