“With solo exhibitions across Australia over the past five years, Dampney is fast becoming a renowned photo artist. As a street photographer his tendency is to find Australians in their lighter moments, enjoying life for its simplicity and beauty. From shooting surf photography from the water (mostly from the North Shore of Oahu) to his time as a photojournalist, Dampney has found himself immersed in the thick of things on more than one occasion. It is ironic that his more renowned work of black and white images depicting peace and innocence, are often from a time for him as a photographer where riots and twenty-foot swells were a regular occurrence. Dampney’s background as a software engineer with bachelor degrees in Economics and Science further add to the enigma, In looking forward, he intends to continue capturing people in their everyday lives, often surreptitiously, and in such a context that both beautiful stories can be told and poignant messages can be made. Dampney currently works as a commercial photographer and freelances as a photojournalist.”

“Basking in Surrender” is a series of photographic prints depicting people at one with themselves and their natural environment. The exhibition portrays humanity relinquishing its ties to purposeful action, people in a state of peaceful surrender to the moment, those with quiet minds and happy hearts.

Dampney strives to leave the viewer uplifted – renewed by the belief that humanity’s shortcomings can be overcome through a shared sense of peace.
