About George

For Sydney–born artist and photographer George Byrne, the essence of a city lies in its everyday landscape — the spaces, the gaps, the surfaces. This aptitude for capturing the surreal and sublime fuelled George’s itch to travel and then saw him relocate to Los Angeles in 2011, where, immersed in the strange transience of the city, his artistic identity flourished. The past decade has seen George work towards two solo exhibitions each year, all while amassing a remarkable Instagram following for his escapist imagery. In 2020 George produced his first photography book 'Post Truth', featuring a selection of photographic compositions from his series of the same name. We chat to George about how Los Angeles has shaped his creative practice and why the city was the ideal fit for a photographer who finds endless inspiration just by walking down the street.
