Chloe Bartram (b. 1991, K'gari) is an award-winning photographic artist and visual narrator based in Fremantle (Whadjuk), Western Australia. Chloe has been a finalist in the Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Award and the Maggie Diaz Photography Prize and nominated for the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass, amongst others. Her images have featured in many international photography festivals including the Organ Vida Photo Festival (Croatia), Les Rencontres de la Photographie Arles (France) and The Biennale Della Fotografia Femminile (ITALY). Her series Sparkle, baby, won third place in the Sony World Photography Awards. Working across traditional documentary, alternate processes and archival imagery, Chloe’s work is concerned the facilitators of our historical narratives, lived experiences that exist on the fringes of perceived knowledge and the gathering practices, or the how, of archival collections. She has a fascination with learning about Western Australian history through a critical lens that reflects on the relationship between humans, landscape, and our connection to the sky, through the traces we leave behind. Chloe is a current PhD Candidate at Murdoch Research exploring just that through source material relating to solar eclipses. She was also the 2022 JS Battye recipient at the State Library of Western Australia which allowed her to interact with the physical source material while also elevating her love affair with libraries and books.
