Exhibition at MAGNET @ Docklands
Thursday to Sunday: 1pm to 5pm
Fascinated by the old-worldliness of the Yi People, an ethnic group who inhibited a part of China, predominantly in the Yunan and Sichuan provinces. Michael Coyne made a series of portraits of village people he encountered.
Michael decided to use the Holga pinhole camera because it makes photographs that could have been taken back in the dawn of the photographic age - and this, he says, is so appropriate for portraits of the Yi people who live both in the modern age and also in an ancient timelessness.
Exhibition at MAGNET GALLERIES MELBOURNE
8th annual women photographers' exhibition to celebrate International Women's Day.
A fundraiser for UN Women.
Abstract photography focuses on the simplest elements of artistic expression: form, light, colour.
The viewer may not see the whole subject within the photograph.
In an abstract, the subject is often only a small part of the idea of the image.
Exhibiting works from:
Barbara Oehring, Carmel Riordan, Christine Gibbs, Deborah Horner, Deborah Nerurker, Ilana Rose, Ivana Maric, Jacinta Maude, Jill Frawley, Joanna Harris, Loren Mitchell, Marilyn Jeanette, Margot Sharman, Pam Davidson, Pam Kleeman, Silvi Glattauer, Sue Jackson, Susan Henderson, Susanne Silver, Tammy Boyce and Yzabela Dior.
