“I think I’ve been taking two pulses… the pulse of the society around me, and my own pulse.”
Robert McFarlane has been photographing Australia and Australians for over 50 years and this new exhibition draws on his extensive archive as well as giving glimpses into his private work, photographs never published before, taken purely for his own enjoyment. Known for his iconic portraits and natural affinity for light, this exhibition explores how McFarlane’s images have a stillness and depth not always noticed, as he takes us into intriguing visual spaces and encourages us to think about the world we inhabit.
McFarlane talks about photography as ‘a moment of interchange between the ordinary and the extraordinary’. This exhibition will show just how he captures the extraordinary in his images, from the famous and well known to the everyday moments. The images encourage you to look deeper, finding your way through the layers and exploring the many points of stillness within.
