Rebecca Scheinberg is an Australia-born, London-based photographer whose work spans still life, documentary, fashion and portraiture. Her choice of subject matter is broad and ever-evolving, but her photographs – whether a dynamic shot of a woman in motion, or a pristine editorial image of a luxury timepiece – are always characterised by sensuality and a sensitive application of light.
Scheinberg trained as a classical dancer, going on to work with Batsheva Ensemble – an influence which manifests in her work through an enduring focus on the human body. Through her lens, the physical form becomes by turns tender, powerful, miraculous and ordinary. In particular, she explores gesture, injecting emotional resonance into the crook of a wrist or the arch of an ankle as though she were a choreographer, locating narrative in the subtlety of a subject’s movements.
Scheinberg’s clients include Burberry, Wallpaper*, Port Magazine, Odiseo, Bloomberg and The Sunday Telegraph. She was selected for British Journal of Photography 2015 and exhibited in Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed at The Photographers' Gallery.
