Georgi Silckerodt / Photographer + Part Time Poet
A lifestyle and documentary photographer chasing the in-between moments and telling it as it is. Born in Australia, raised by Germans and currently living in Canada. I grew up in a ghost town in rural Australia with only gum trees and my dogs to keep me company. (Dogs are the best.) I am the daughter of two German punks; a leather seamstress and an erotic oil painter.
The way I work is that I'm either utterly obsessed or completely indifferent. I've been interested in the art of storytelling and observation since childhood. I think people are so extraordinary and I'm very interested in how we all live our lives, separately yet so similarly.
I have a BA of Writing at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, although I didn't graduate the final year following the death of my dad in 2012. Later that year I fell in love with a Canadian over Skype before finally meeting in person 6 months later.
I now reside in the Rocky Mountain with my partner of 7 years, Michael, who is a very talented welder and artist. I spend my free time training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at my local club, Bow Valley Jiu Jitsu — come check it out if you’re local! I also love reading in the colder months and listening to good old fashioned rock & roll. Please contact me if you wish to share or publish any of my work.
