HOME – Group Show

This group show featuring Brian Cassey, Daniel Grendon, Godelieve Mols, Isabelle Baumann Ivana Jovanovic, Lola Alexander, Michael Jalaru Torres, Nick Pont, Samantha Mackie and Zorica Purlija explores the theme of ‘home’. As you can see from these images, it’s a theme that means a whole lot of different things for the individual. And it’s one of my favourite themes because of the unique perspectives it evokes.

An Inconsistent Look – Group Show

(C) Felipe Devoto

This group exhibition examines how people often see the same things differently; how what one person notices another will overlook. Once again, it’s all about perspectives. 
“An Inconsistent Look” takes the viewer to the streets of Melbourne and Argentina in black and white, and in colour. Italian-born photographer Carlos Oggioni captures the daily commute in Melbourne; Scottish-born photographer Barry C. Douglas steps back to look in; and Felipe Devoto presents an abstract view of his native Argentina.

Daniel Castro Garcia – Foreigner: Migration into Europe 2015-2016

Daniel Castro Garcia was this year’s winner of the British Journal of Photography’s International Photography Award for his series depicting migrants caught up in the European refugee crisis.

Castro Garcia spent weeks with his subjects, interviewing almost everyone before he photographed them. He says this engagement is “the backbone of the work. Going up to people and speaking to them, discussing their situation before even mentioning photography. I really have a strong belief that it’s a collaboration. Without engaging with the individuals and conveying what you’re trying to do with them, it’s worthless.”

“Foreigner: Migration into Europe 2015-2016” is also a self-published book.
