Further information

Noon's photographs are distinguished by their refined compositions in which the human body is offset against a stark background. Born in England, Noon moved to Australia as a teenager. She became interested in photography in her early twenties. After working for a suburban wedding/portrait studio and other commercial photographic studies, Noon became a freelance photographer in 1975. Commenting on her diving photographs Noon writes: "They are to do with summer, physical strength, control, boldness, youth, clouds and the geometric arrangements of shapes... The physical marvel of the human form flying through space".
