Photographer: Vee Speers

I couldn't take my eyes off this photographers new work. Vee Spears is an Australian born artist. Her newest work entitled The Birthday Party is a series of short stories linked by the theme of an imaginary birthday party. It is partly a self portrait with themes linked by the artists own childhood. I'm drawn to the starkness and colorless of her subjects. As well as the uneasiness their blank gazes portray. How interesting this is when artists use there own childhood experiences in creating new works of art. Do you find yourself ever thinking back on your own childhood for inspiration?
