Emotional baggage,

Derailing on the wrong side of the tracks.

Exhibition Description

Shot on the island of Negros Occidental, Philippines, this work follows on from Norberto's series Buwas (Tomorrow). As in his previous work, 'Reflections examines' the ways in which the threads of our lives intertwine and collide. A few years ago, I remember an old man told me that our lives are a series of threads woven and intertwined. I asked what he meant. He just smiled and said, "You are here now." I thought it was a series of coincidences but it was not just something that was unlikely to happen.

Exhibition Description

Early one morning on my second visit to the small village of Agay, France, I witnessed a man taking down a hotel sign, letter by letter, from one of the many Hotels situated on the beachfront.
I had fallen in love with the little village at the start of the summer in 2015, and to see some of it’s iconic scenery transforming in real time gave me a wave of perspective.
Perhaps the hotel was closing because it was the end of summer? Perhaps it was because business wasn’t going so well, or possibly another reason all together?

Exhibition Description

The Haut Marais, or top of the Marais, located in the historic 3rd arrondissement of Paris, was my home with my wife and young daughter for 15 months, during 2014-15. It is a thriving, and at times frenetic, if slightly grungy part of Paris, with its trendy cafés, bulging with finely dressed and under-fed models on the many 'fashion weeks' throughout the year. Traditionally a Jewish enclave of Paris, it was quickly becoming known for its gay night clubs and culture, and the inevitable clash where the two worlds met.

Architecture of ancient Persia / Iran

Exhibiting photographer(s): 
Rod Sainty

m2 Gallery

Exhibition Dates:

Dates of Exhibition: 
Wed, 05/03/2017 - Tue, 05/16/2017

Exhibition Description

In 2014 and 2015, Sydney-based photographer Rod Sainty travelled extensively throughout modern-day Iran to locate and photograph the iconic architecture and monuments of ancient Persia. Rod sought to document these compelling structures in the most realistic manner he could muster, using a modern large format view camera specialized for architecture and state-of-the-art large format lenses, loaded with traditional 4x5 inch sheet film.  In this day and age, travelling internationally with large format cameras and lenses and 4x5 sheet film is, let’s say, anachronistic.

Through a collaboration with master printer Chris Reid, owner of Blanco Negro in Sydney, Rod presents an exhibition of exquisite hand-crafted archival black and white photographs printed on a particularly silver-rich photographic paper. Colour and black and white digital prints are also available at lower cost. While the digital prints are fantastic and richly detailed, the hand-crafted silver prints made directly from the negatives are exquisite and must be seen in person to be appreciated.

These are the photos of Gordon McComiskie widely known and admired by his fellow photographers and the readers of the Daily Telegraph.

He shoots after dark starting at 10pm on the streets when most of us are in bed sleeping, or out partying. The graveyard shift is not a well populated one, even with journos in action packed Sydney.

Mon, 05/08/2017 - Sun, 05/14/2017

Exhibition Description

Eastern Thoughts is a series of images of the everyday life, people, objects, and atmosphere Victor Queiroz encountered while traveling through Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand. He wonders how much the images reveal about the lived experience of local people and of himself and his own expectations and cultural organisation. Once an image is taken it is extracted from the context and the surrounding smells, sounds, temperature, and sensations. Therefore the image is not so much a portal to another culture but a portal to the culture stored inside our body.

Wed, 05/03/2017 - Sun, 05/28/2017

Exhibition Description

Selling Dreams presents a new way of observing the African cityscape and questions the specificity and universality of marketing and the representations employed by market forces. It began on Virginia Ryan’s return to Abidjan in November 2011 as a period of civil strife and violence named ‘La Crise’ was ending. The city had suffered the trauma of violence and was slowly picking itself up economically and politically. Ryan set out to document familiar places by sourcing the suspended idealised world of publicity floating above.
