Ponch Hawkes

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. More information can be found here.
