Audra Osborne is a photographer and crafter living in Portland, Oregon. Her work stems from the often debilitating emotions she (and many people) feel on a daily basis. These ideas typically center around anxiety, depression, and loss. Her photographs act as a visual diary and study of these emotions, as well as a remedy. By creating these images she has created a space for herself and others to discuss these "taboo" topics on an open platform. This self-enforced openness has allowed her to become more in control of her anxiety, beyond systems and treatments.
Audra is currently collaborating with a group of 6 other amazing female photographers in Portland, find us here : SMALL TALK COLLECTIVE
As a group, we are interested in exploring the nature of what it means to be a visual storyteller. In practical terms, we pool resources, provide support and exchange ideas - we engage in the best kind of small talk, that which binds us together, fostering stronger work and facilitating collaboration. Looking forward, we will explore showing and publishing our work together while individually continuing on our personal projects.
