Steffen Tuck was born in Brisbane, Australia where she still resides. She is an architect and interior designer.
In 1994 she started her small studio in pursuit of other immediate creative inputs in craft and design, which paved the way to photography as a means of documenting and further exploring the beauty of the banal every day.
Her inspirations come from the randomness of her regular walks in the inner city areas around where she lives broaching industrial, central city and commercial precincts in favour of suburban sprawl.
The challenge comes from finding beauty where there is no inherent beauty such as the back lanes,
roadsides, industrial estates and forgotten or neglected building edges.
