About Lilli
Lilli Waters was born in 1983 in Armidale, NSW. Fascinated with a world of fantasy rich with ethereal themes, Water’s work is a mix of both digital and analogue photography using heavy layering processes to create fantastical and somewhat unsettling moods. In her portraits she exposes an enigmatic sense of her past and surrounding environment, mixing brutal realism and chaotic settings which resists the serene and awkward beauty of her subjects. Waters has held several solo exhibitions, including the World Trade Centre in Melbourne of survivors from the Black Saturday bush fires, also a selection of works for a group exhibition at Brick Lane gallery in London towards the end of this year. Some of her career highlights include being a Finalist in the Head On Portrait Prize 2013, Highly Commended in the Moran Prize in 2012 and Qantas Spirit of Youth Awards in 2012 & 2013. Waters dedicated her ‘She Raw’ photographic project to preventing violence against women, in launching the She Raw book she raised over $1000 for the White Ribbon Foundation in 2012. Waters is currently living and working in Brunswick, Melbourne.

This is a cemetery on Lygon st in Carlton, I often drive past it. When I took this photo a massive storm was approaching, the clouds were moving in and you could feel it in the air. I love storms, you get the feeling like something exciting is going to happen..

This image was taken on my 35mm olympus film camera on a stormy, rainy evening in Brunswick. The house is only a few streets away from mine and I often noticed it's hauntingly beauty driving past. It is an image from the photographic series 'Witness'.

This image is cheating, as it is not an image taken from the 'City I live in'. It is part of the creek that runs through the 16 acres of bush property in Burringbar NSW that belongs to my partner, we go up there a few times a year to relax and be amongst nature. This house is also just a few hours away from Nimbin, the place I was born and grew up.

I often drive through Brunswick on my way home towards the west, so I get to stare at the most beautiful pink and orange setting skies when I should be concentrating on the road. I take photos of them but they never turn out like the real thing.

This was taken on my 35mm olympus film camera and is of my old room in the house I spent most of my teen years in, which at this time had been passed onto my little sister years after I had moved out. The light through the windows was always so beautiful.

Taken on my 35mm olympus film camera in a house in Brunswick, an old floral bed sheet that had fallen from the hills hoist above it. I thought it looked beautiful lying there amongst the weeds forgotten about.

I was born in St Petersburg, then, at 11, moved to Siberia where I have lived for 12 more years, graduated from a local university before returning to my hometown in 1998. I took various jobs there before finally turning to photography. From last August I am based in Moscow, a mad metropolis full of contrasts, energy and drama at every corner. In terms of urban design and architecture, many consider it a failed city, and you really have to know it from the inside to be able to appreciate its vibrance and dynamics. In this nostalgic picture (by Savva Bogatyrev), I am on a tram back in St Pete with my wife Veronika.
