Location: 107 Projects, Redfern-Sydney

This exhibition is presented as part of the Head On Photo Festival

About the exhibition: 

200 Years On reflects rapidly changing society of regional NSW. The exhibition is made up of a series of portraits which capture a cross-section of regional NSW. It was inspired by the 1818 Macquarie River expedition of explorer John Oxley. I travelled the same route, producing portraits of the individuals he encountered along the way.

The photographs are accompanied by an audio guide tour. Enjoy the stories of these people in the in the photographs here

About the festival:

Head On Photo Festival is an international annual photography festival based in Sydney. This world-leading annual event attracts over 600,000 visits and showcases in over 100 venues around Sydney. Founded in 2004, Head On Photo Festival is a major platform for discovering new talent, re-discovering established artists and exploring new technologies and ideas through exhibitions, workshops, discussion and collaboration with other events.

About the space:

107 Redfern is a multipurpose creative hub that supports exhibition and performance spaces, artist studios, workshop, event and co-working spaces, offices, a rooftop garden and public social areas.

Redfern is considered to be an iconic place for Indigenous and non-indigenous people in Sydney. This suburb has a diverse population, made by people from different ethnic background and it has been characterised by successive migrant populations.

These characteristics make the space a perfect fit to exhibit my work.
