Ponch Hawkes (b. 1946) is a Melbourne-based photographic artist whose work has been widely exhibited and published in Australia. A significant part of Hawkes’ output is documentary, and a commentary on Australian society and cultural life since the 1970s. In her work she considers topics such as: the body and movement; sport; circus and theatre; the environment and community; and relationships—with a feminist purpose.
Hawkes’ work was included in the original iteration of In Her Words at Horsham Regional Gallery.
