Caleb Cameron is a multimedia artist whose practice incorporates film, photography, collage and writing. His aim is to create a multi-layered experience for the viewer, both content-wise and thematically, always allowing the viewer room to explore through their own perspectives and frameworks. Cameron started his journey in late 2020 by creating his first short film Gothenburg as the cinematographer for the North Queensland based production company Theatre of Diversion. He has since directed and written several independent films including Preliminary Information, Rose-3 and Saprobe. He has also produced and directed a multi-media art exhibition called Dark Lining in collaboration with Diffraction Collective; produced several photography and poem collections; and released two multi-media books - Path Bound and Portraits Upon Words.
