Maelstrom

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Luke Shadbolt

Maelstrom documents the duality of nature; creation and destruction in a single act. It is an exploration of the balance of light and dark inherent in nature, both on a physical and qualitative level. In this new body of work, an astounding array of environmental factors align in a sudden, fleeting, chaotic event, to produce an oceanic force that is unmatchable in its primal ferocity.

Industrial Heartland

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Michael Kluge

Industrial Heartland is a photographic exploration that focuses our attention on a unique Melbourne industrial landscape in the City of Kingston. At first glance this intriguing area seems deceptively homogeneous in its purpose and appearance, but upon closer inspection this overlooked and utilitarian landscape is strikingly diverse and alluring.

Sleeping Beauties

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Krishna Tummalapalli

Cars parked in the streets are a common feature in Bangalore, India. Of the innumerable cars I came across, I was drawn to those that were covered while parked. Over a period of time, I realized that the covered cars are rarely used and mostly lie sleeping in the streets. As I made images of the covered forms in the everyday landscape, I began to see them as symbols of wasted abilities. This series of photographs is my reflection on human potential and possibilities.

Pizza Hunt

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Ho Hai Tran and Chloe Cahill

Pizza Hunt is a photographic record of the 
iconic dine-in Pizza Hut restaurants that were erected in the thousands in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Today, only a handful of these huts remain and they now have second lives as grocery stores, pawnshops, gospel churches, liquor stores and funeral homes - among other things. Those that remain, those that have not been demolished or are not slated for demolition, exist in the space where the unremarkable and the unforgettable meet.

The Imagined Emotional Landscape

This exhibition has adopted an eclectic view of landscape enabling the authors to pursue a wide range of studies where one or more emotional frames are explored. The images range across themes such as disability, greed, beauty, compassion, heritage, architecture, flight, ageism and the migrant experience. The unifying dimension is that a landscape is the context within which a range of emotional responses are shown or elicited.

Head On Landscape Prize 2016

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
40 Finalists

The Head On Landscape Prize and NSW Parliament Landscape Photography Prize was launched in 2013 to encourage a new perspective of an old genre to push creative boundaries and promote work that is informed, but not limited, by traditional practices.

Head On has a broad approach to ‘Landscape’ which encompasses ‘large vista’ images of the natural environment (land or sea), urban or industrial settings. It may include people but are ‘incidental’ rather than the main subject matter.

The Weather

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
A Combination of FAIRFAX MEDIA Photos and Clique Photographic Association Members Photos

The sheer immensity of a supercell thunderstorm or erratic exponential growth of a bushfire captures our attention like nothing else. History has been shaped by such elemental phenomena which were for so long attributed to gods. Photography has not only helped with the scientific study of weather but also captured the very essence of which makes us stare in awe at them.

This small selection of some of the most destructive and beautiful weather in Australia displays its unquestionable grandeur and allure, it perpetually captivates Fairfax photographers and others alike.

Omöjligt / Impossible

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Erik Johansson

Erik Johansson is a photographer and retouch artist from Sweden based in Prague, Czech Republic. He doesn't capture moments, he capture ideas. He uses photography as a way to collect material to realize the idea in the computer. One single image can consist of hundreds of layers but he always want to make it look as if it was only one. Erik finds inspiration everywhere, while taking a walk, listening to music or surfing the web. Inspiration is more about looking at the world differently, trying to combine things that are normally not supposed to be.
