Toby Dixon began taking photos as a way of documenting his nomadic upbringing, and soon found he was drawn to the unconventional individuals and landscapes that still make up his subject matter today.
With a background in visual arts, a degree in communications and a long stint assisting some of the finest image-makers in Australia, Canada and The United States, Dixon’s images have a disarming quality to them.
His landscape series, ‘Concrete’ won both the Judges’ and People’s Choice Awards in the 2006 Projections Competition. In the commercial sphere he has shot campaigns for Cadbury, Toyota, Canon, Kodak, LG, Smirnoff, UBank, Hahn, Vodafone and Sunbeam among others. Dixon’s work is driven by a desire to capture warmth hidden beneath a rough exterior, and a hunger to prove that first appearances are often misleading.
