City Impressions

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Andreas Gschwind, Thomas Buckwalter
In this exhibition Thomas and Andreas are showing two different views of 2 different cities. Thomas shows his impressions of people in Sydney and their sometimes unintentional relationship to the environment they are in. Andreas captures the impression of travelling on subways in Munich and tries to capture the uniqueness of every station in one single picture. Can people recognise the environment within a very short timeframe?

Life is the Visualisation of a Dream

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Kocha Worapon
‘Life is the Visualisation of a Dream’ is a photography series that express my first experience of Australia, a place where I still get lost in the cultural transformation. Everything was/is just like a distorted shape of a dream, and my photography functions as an everyday recording device that captures a unique, fragmented, abstract form of life.

Capturing Koi

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Julie Ellitt
My Exhibition entitled "Capturing Koi" has a two fold meaning. There are some that capture the Koi, after dark with a flashlight fleeing the scene with the Koi in a bucket to make money from their sale. They say that one big Koi can fetch up to $1000 on the black market. I on the other hand capture the Koi with my camera to share in there beauty, peacefulness and environment with others. Since photographing these Koi over the year, the big white Koi, which is a local favourite has since vanished.!! JULIE ELLITT 2017

The Tasmanian Tree Project: Exploring the World’s Tallest Flowering Tree

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Steven Pearce

Tasmania is home to the largest flowering tree in the world, the Mountain Ash, yet few people are aware it exists in Australia. The project’s team of canopy scientists who regularly explore the rainforest are bringing awareness to these globally significant trees. Using innovative arboreal rigging techniques to place cameras in the free space between the giants, they travel the entire height of the tree and record hundreds of images which are blended together to create the first complete portrait of the tree without visual distortion.

A Personal Journey

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Philip Myers

Philip Myers reflected on the nature of photography as a personal act and response to our encounters. He realised that some of his photographs were more personal than others and this distinction was founded on a connected reality. A premeditated photograph held him away from his immediate reality, whereas a spontaneous photograph drew him closer. A Personal Journey is a diary of Myer’s life experiences and documents the anchors in his reality. All photographs were taken on an iPhone and were an immediate un-calculated response to what was around him.

The Beach

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Maggie Hall
I live in the city of Newcastle, NSW, Australia. It was founded more than two hundred years ago, as a convict settlement. Epochal changes are happening: the devastation of the natural world accelerates, the wreckage of a twentieth century industrial wasteland continues its decline. At this moment of closure and transition we are experiencing a period of extinction . . . the abandoned, the neglected, the despised, the condemned, those who will determine what happens . . . are the survivors.

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.
