Photo- Elizabeth Looker

 

There is quite a beautiful and sensual photo exhibition on at Fremantle’s Kidogo Arthouse at Bathers Beach that is well worth viewing.

Elizabeth Looker‘s The Spirit and the Flesh are moody, dark, long exposure photos of a female dancer, creating a sense of motion and emotion.

Looker’s photo Life Dancers won the Australian National Photographic Portrait Prize 2016, and she is also one of the finalists for the 2019 NPPP.

The photos for the Fremantle show were taken in Sweden, where Looker worked as an artist in residence at Konstepidemin.

The exhibition is only on for a few more days, so go and have a look this weekend!

CARING THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Posted in city of fremantle, photography, social services, Uncategorized, youth by freoview on September 1, 2018

 

AsEyeSeeIt

 

A new photo exhibition at the Fremantle Shipwrecks Museum is well worth viewing

As Eye See It Photographic Exhibition asked young people living in care in Western Australia to express what is important to them through photography.

Participants were given a camera and encouraged to take four photographs of things which hold a special significance for them.

The collection of photographs aims to raise awareness about what it means to live in out-of-home care and provides an insight into the worlds of these young people.

View this free exhibition at the WA Shipwrecks Museum in our their multipurpose community space.

Comment: This reminds me of the very moving Sight Unseen exhibition I curated many years ago at PICA, where I asked blind people to take photos of the three most important things in their life. The participants were then quoted underneath each photo as to why the image was so significant to them. Many visitors on the opening night had tears in their eyes.

IMAGES OF INDIA FREO FUNDRAISER

Posted in art, bathers beach art precinct, city of fremantle, photography, Uncategorized by freoview on March 16, 2018

 

 

OPENS TONIGHT!

Images of India is a fundraising exhibition by local photographer Juliet Murray.

The exhibition opens on Friday 16th March at 6.30pm at the Art of Freo Gallery at J Shed and runs Wednesday to Sunday 11-4pm until March 25th.  There will also be a fundraising raffle with heaps of great prizes.

India is a land of contrasts. It is a country that is immensely rich; in culture, spirituality and diversity. It is enchanting and beautiful place, overwhelming to the senses.

On the flipside, poverty is significant, with one on 5 living in extreme poverty, without access to basic human needs. Of the poor, only 20% have access to toilets, 60% to electricity and 6% to running water.

This fundraising exhibition aims to capture both the magnificence of this sacred country and it’s people whilst highlighting the issue of extreme poverty and struggles that the people face, in a compassionate and sensitive manner.

Proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the Australian Friends of Asha, who work to support and raise awareness of the important work that is done by Asha India in tackling issues that keep slum dwellers trapped in poverty. Their programmes help slum residents gain access to healthcare, financial services and education, and make it possible for them to make long-term, positive changes to their lives.
