Exhibition Description

The war between Armenia and Azerbaijan has been a long one. The troubles started in 1988, escalating into a full-scale war when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. It left 65,000 ethnic Armenians and 40,000 ethnic Azeris displaced. The International Crisis Group pointed out how the two countries are closer to war in Nagorno-Karabakh’s enclave than in any time since 1994. My project focuses on the young Artsakh citizens who are forced to become soldiers. Between the ages of 13-18, they wear uniforms and train in a military academy.

Exhibition Description

There is this thing in art photography where its about trying to see things or people
Thats the theory anyhow
There is thing in journalism where its about opportunistic ideas about a 'good shot"
Thats like its underside

I find that difficult, being a woman, close to variable Abled people and having a complex cultural and personal history.
I know how that feels to be an object of interest not a person

That causes me to struggle
with a blind or obscured or omitted area within myself and the drives and ambition we all have for a "good shot'

Exhibition Description

Cities are peculiar formations. They're hectic, reckless, confusing, alienating, and lonely. But all cities preserve a slice of the seemingly naturalistic village. Their inhabitants are always looking for familiar settings to call home.

When I started to take pictures with the city as my muse, I especially captured the residents and how they arranged their lives. I always try to discover the poetry of everyday life, such as the moments that make me stop and small scenes that trigger stories in the viewer.

Fri, 05/05/2017 - Sun, 05/28/2017

Exhibition Description

Beneath the Surface explores the concept of otherness in the central Queensland community of Rockhampton. Rockhampton has been labelled a town of intolerance, racism, homophobia, and rednecks. Photographer Lisa Clarke confronts and challenges mainstream understanding of regional Australia, in particular, a region predominately known for being Australia’s beef capital.

Rather than focus on generalised stereotypes, the photographer actively sought to document the different cross-sections of Rockhampton’s population, each going about their everyday lives.

Exhibition Description

Rough and Cut is a photographic exploration offering a vivid perspective on the mining town Coober Pedy and it’s desert surroundings – photographed in 2015. Located 850 kilometres north of Adelaide, the town's isolation is palpable throughout the photographs, suffused with a strange dreamlike quality.  Infamous for its underground housing and opal mining, an inhospitable heat forces residents to shelter within – and under – the land, creating unique and intriguing scenes.
