Amelia & the Animals

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Robin Schwartz

Amelia and the Animals is drawn from journeys undertaken by mother and daughter in the interspecies world they inhabit with animals, of all varieties, over the past thirteen years.

The line between human and animal overlaps or is blurred, where animals are part of mother and child’s world and humans are a part of theirs. Fantasies and eccentricities are explored to create a cultural space in the photographs where animals not only co-exist with humans, but also interact as full partners.

Freetown Fashpack – Touring exhibition from Bega Valley Regional Gallery

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Jo Dunlop

Aid worker Jo Dunlop travelled to Freetown in 2011. While working on the devastating health impacts of Sierra Leone's bloody civil war, Dunlop was captivated by the Sierra Leoneans’ unique fashion sense and strong personal style.
 
"The streets are teeming with some of the most resourceful, brave and outrageous fashion decisions ever made. In a country so commonly associated with civil war and blood diamonds and more recently Ebola, I felt inspired to show a different side to Sierra Leone and reveal an unlikely fashion hotspot."

Fragile Series

Exhibiting photographer(s):
