Chantel Bann is a Sydney based photographer, artist, and musician.

Often utilising performative elements to her multi-disciplinary art practice, Chantel explores the playful boundaries and dynamics between the candid and controlled; and liminal states of identity via ritualistic performance and costume, presenting her ideas through photo, video and sound.

Chantel is the keyboardist and vocalist for Sydney band Shanghai, and also extends her musical experience to her art practice, composing avant-garde sound pieces that respond to visual and physical stimuli.

In addition to her art practice, Chantel has been a professional photographer for over 10 years specialising in stylised portraiture, live music, events, performance, and artwork / gallery / exhibition documentation.
