Southland is a body of work featuring the South Island of New Zealand. I have exhibited it in Melbourne and New York but never in full in Sydney. Now that I am part owner in Black Eye (contemporary photographic gallery in Darlinghurst) well the work was a natural fit to be shown.
In this day and age of digital photography SOUTHLAND highlights the beauty of the organic photography medium. Photographed using Polaroid film on a large-format camera it is a visually rich and inspired interpretation of the powerful New Zealand landscape.
SOUTHLAND is showing from 14th August until 8th of Sept – with the opening night 6-8pm on Tues 20th of August.
