Ponch Hawkes

Ponch Hawkes developed her photographic practice in the 1970s, informed by counter-cultural, feminist, documentary and community art contexts. For Melbourne Now, Hawkes has produced a new body of work responding to the phenomenon of ‘tree tagging’ – a form of graffiti on trees, which Hawkes noticed when frequenting a local park. Hawkes’ photographs document the marks but also observe their changing form as the trees shed their barks.
