Damien Drew has a passion for documenting the built environment and our relationship with it. He is fascinated with the loss of ‘place’, the erasure of unique communities, and their replacement with homogenous franchised environments. Drew observes that vital places are being transformed such that ‘every place’ becomes ‘no place’ in particular. He observes these cultural and social shifts by documenting our urban fabric, asking that we pay attention to scenes and details that we might habitually pass by. His images capture the beauty in unlikely locations, reframing loss and decay as an invitation for reflection and introspection.
Drew’s work has been featured by White Lies Magazine, Aint Bad Magazine, Feature Shoot, Paris Photo Agenda, Capture Magazine and Australian Photography Magazine. He has also shown in group exhibitions for Feature Shoot in Berlin and New York City and Rewind Photo Gallery in Sydney. He was a finalist in Lens Culture AFAR Travel Awards in 2018, Photo Lucida ‘Critical Mass’ in 2020, and Sienna Photo Awards in 2017 and 2021. He was also a finalist in the HeadOn Photo - Landscape Awards 2021.
Drew is a passionate photographer who alongside his work as an award-winning feature film art director develops his craft through stills photography. His feature film credits include Ridley Scott’s Alien Covenant, The Great Gatsby, Superman Returns, Star Wars and The Matrix films. He studied Architecture at UNSW in Sydney and he has a passion for design and storytelling. He is currently senior art director on Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Untitled Elvis Presley Biopic’.
