Rachel Main's artistic practice is rooted in storytelling and connection and at its core are the relationships and the communities of people she is engaged with. She is interested in process, participation and collaboration, with her work spanning across photography and video. She has been embedded in the Australian Krump scene for over 13 years, initially joining to learn the foundations of the dance and later becoming the community ‘documenter’. This ongoing body of work has been exhibited across nationally, winning the Judges Award at the Gertrude Street Projection Festival, named as a semi-finalist in the Moran Prize, shortlisted in the Australian Photography Awards, published in Blow Up magazine and collected by the State Library of Victoria and private collectors. Alongside her practice, Rachel is also an educator and facilitates photography and filmmaking workshops. She is also currently completing a Master of Art, Photography.
