Seng sings praises of hometown
MANDURAH photographer and creative director Jarrad Seng sees the world through his own unique lens – and his hometown is clearly still a passion project.
A finalist for the WA Young Person of the Year Award in 2013, Mr Seng has established himself as one of Australia’s most prolific visual artists.
He has worked on projects as diverse as international tours, tourism campaigns, art installations, short films and charity projects at home and abroad.
But while his star has been rising internationally, home is still where the art is for Mr Seng.
As part of our #SnapPerth campaign, we asked him what makes our hometown so special.
Mr Seng grew up in Mandurah, and he credited his relaxed approach to life and work to his smalltown upbringing.
“I loved growing up in Mandurah,” he said. “I think that growing up in a small town sets you on the path to developing a more carefree, relaxed attitude to life.”
Another initiative close to Mr Seng’s heart is the MOSAIC project, which he helped create with Propel Youth Arts WA.
The project aims to create a "collective memory of Western Australia through the eyes of its people”. The MOSAIC exhibition runs at Carillon City from October 26 until
