The Auckland Festival of Photography 2019 features the 9th Annual Commission. Each year, an Auckland-based artist is commissioned to create a new body of work for exhibition during the Festival. This year's commissioned artist is Yvonne Shaw.

Yvonne Shaw uses photographic portraiture to explore interpersonal relations and a multiplicity of roles. She is interested in patterns of attraction and rejection within social groups. Her unscripted process of working with the protagonists in her photographs allows for both spontaneity and enactment. The resulting images hover between psychological theatre and the authentic tension of human encounter.

Yvonne completed a Master of Fine Arts (First Class Hons) at Elam School of Fine Arts in 2017.
