Captured 50 year anniversary exhibition

This years Captured exhibition is celebrating fifty years of photography at the Sydney Institute of Photography.

Thousands of ex students were invited to submit works for this event which in turn were anonymously submitted for selection by a panel of industry professionals and showcased at The Muse this Monday evening.

There was an amazing caliber of work on show and I was delighted to discover some of my own had been included.




Captured 2014 runs until Friday the 19th of September 10:00am – 4:00pm daily @ The Muse Cnr Harris and Thomas Sts, Ultimo 2007.


The Body – Australia’s first “poster” exhibition

This evening I attended The Body, An exhibition at Pro Exhibit in Alexandria Sydney.

Upon hearing of this I was told this would be a “digital poster” exhibit and was quite curious so decided to head along and check it out. After aproaching the gallery I noted a Beautful transilluminated black and white print, along with a large screen, what was going to be inside?

When I entered there were several larger prints along with these “strips” that were almost like a reel of each photographers work. Between these were the photographers biographies.

After grabbing some fruity Sangria I headed into a darkened room where there was an amazing array of screens suspended from the ceiling in a wave formation displaying beautiful large bright images of bodies in a range of styles from the talent on display.

Catching up with Ben Sherak, Shelly Sernek & Ralph Hass

I have to say I really liked what I saw, This style of exhibit made it possible for more than several photographers to display their work in one place. Notable works I liked included shots from Peter Steele & Oliver Berlin.

I’d love to have a comprehensive list of all photographers involved but couldn’t source one at this time

For those of you who missed the opening – the exhibition runs until the 4th December 10pm-4pm daily

Excerpt from (with images added)

“We enjoyed great success on the opening night with both sides of THE MUSE fully packed,Drinks were enjoyed and the calibre of work was absolutely breathtaking, Combine this with the great food & atmosphere (not to mention the grand piano) and one would easily come to the conclusion that the night was a smashing success.

After 4 long years (give or take a few depending on each students background) of study everyone came together and produced something amazing.

After so much hard time and preperation the final year students a few days earlier had their portfolios evaluated by some of the industries best and brightest, including: Moshe Rosenzveig, Penelope Beveridge & Robert  Cameriere

From their evaluations combined with those of the great photographers who taught us,  they came up with results that would not only determine an academic outcome but also effectivly judge who would win a number of prizes for their achievments on the evening


Those prizes were awarded for:

Best portfolio Stephanie Georgia Jury

With prizes supplied courtesy of Adobe, Sun Studios & Canon Australia




Runner up best portfolio of the year Neck Ro

Best Image Mariam Adra

And a surprise consolation prize was issued by Peter Gillies who loved Melinda Cartmer’s body of work, awarding her with some free use of freedom studios


We as a group would love to thank everyone who showed up and all those who supported us, Including friends, teachers, families & sponsers alike.”
