About Jacalyn Mann

I grew up in Manchester in the North of England but have lived in many parts of the UK and in France but returned to Manchester when I was 27 years old. I was always interested in art and crafts and can’t remember a time when I wasn’t creating something (other than chaos!!).

I have always been interested in photography and taken photographs firstly with a trusty point and shoot and then with an equally trustworthy DSLR camera.

In 2010 I moved to Melbourne Australia where I started to formally study photography. Since then I have been involved in exhibitions and in 2017 I won a Silver Award in the National AIPP competition and another Silver Award in the Victorian AIPP awards earlier this year.

I love experimenting to create photos and like nothing better than to turn the ordinary into art.
