Mayumi Kataoka is a Sydney based photographer. Originally born in Japan, Mayumi moved to Sydney in 2003 after falling in love with Australia when working as a volunteer at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
Mayumi’s experience of life in Japan has been the greatest influence on her work. She always attempts to express Japanese themes into her photography and at times these themes are very subtle.
Mayumi has been developing her photography skills to capture the Australian native plants – especially Eucalyptus and other trees. The raw and unique beauty of Eucalyptus trees represents the quintessential Australia landscape and greatly inspires her photographic works.
