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.

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.

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.

Thirteen artists from the Melbourne-based Stills Co-Op have joined with thirteen from the Con Artist Collective in New York, coming together from across the world for a visual conversation about Space and Place using the medium of photography.

Over the years the photographic community has come together willingly and generously to provide support for one of its own. It’s been a feature of our galleries to organise and host Benefit exhibitions and MAGNET is about to take over the mantle and wear it with pride.
MAGNET will host a benefit exhibition on behalf of an old friend and lifetime photographer, Skip Watkins, to help with the significant medical costs he is facing. Many prominent photographers are donating special photographs of famous people they have photographed over many years. These photographs will be for sale at very reasonable prices and all money will be donated.
