Heather Faulkner

Queensland College of Art / Griffith University
Senior Lecturer & Program Director, Photography

Dr Heather Faulkner is a documentary photographer and immersive-storyteller whose work focuses on the synergetic themes of identity, place and belonging. In her twenty-year professional practice as a mainstream photojournalist, she has worked concurrently on addressing the histories and realities of marginalised queer communities around the world via documentary photography. Faulkner's recent social documentary research has made a significant contribution to the historical understanding of lesbian culture in Queensland, the most conservative state in Australia. Her transmedia documentary project, A Matter of Time, has uncovered the hidden narratives of lesbian-identified women who experienced living in Queensland during the ultra-conservative Joh Bjelke-Petersen era government. Her book, "North of the Border: Stories from the A Matter of Time Project," was published by University of Western Australia Publishing in September, 2016. Faulkner is a senior lecturer and the Program Director of the Bachelor of Photography at QCA, Griffith University.
