1 in 20

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
1in20

Living with mental illness is many things, it can be ugly, painful, exhausting and life threatening. It can also be tender, beautiful and transformative.  1in20 is a place where you can connect, both heart and mind, with those who have walked before you, so others walk alongside you. 

“More than an awareness campaign, more than healing through art, more than stigma-fighters, 1in20 is a living breathing community offering validation, support and a creative outlet for people coping with and surviving mental illness.”

Eighteen

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Natan Dvir

 

Although I grew up and spent most of my photographic career in Israel, I came to realize I did not truly know or understand its Arab society — over a fifth of the population consisting of hundreds of thousands of families who stayed within Israel's borders after it was established in 1948.

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.

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.

Serving Country

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Belinda Mason and Dieter Knierim
The Serving Country photography exhibition acknowledges and recognises the valuable contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander servicemen and service women who have served or who are serving in the Australian Defence Services. The Serving Country project creates a platform for servicemen and women to share their narrative, that is both empowering and strengthening, whilst validating their experience enabling them to reach out to the wider community. To be able to access programs and support services, veterans must feel recognised and empowered to do so.

Urban Collective Group Show

Time is fleeting and moments may disappear as fast as they appear.

Time is lingering, slowly fading like a lovers kiss when saying goodbye.

Time is free yet priceless and once it's gone its gone. You never get it back.

Kairos is a collection of the ‘right moment' as expressed by Urban Collective Street Photographers.

Curated by Sandra Kozleuchar. More information available here

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 Price of Vanity

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Paolo Marchetti

We all know how intensive farming works, using industrial and scientific techniques to get the maximum amount of product at the lowest possible cost and using minimal space.  Yet we know much less about how intensive farming operates producing animal skins that are destined for the worldwide high fashion market. The business volume that revolves around this trade amounts to millions of dollars and euros. Among the famous brands using animal skins are Gucci, Hermes, Cartier and Burberry.

Silence vs noise

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Getty Images Photographers

Quiet, epic, restrained, powerful. These are the images that tell their stories quietly and succinctly, but create maximum impact. They can be captured anywhere - from moments in a daily life to split-seconds in sport, from landscapes to red carpets to art-like conceptual work. On a surface level, the photos are direct and uncomplicated. But they engage our emotions and spirit with a clear message, like a visual haiku. You get hooked and the story unfolds.
