A whimsical assortment of landscape, botanical and rehashed famous images come together at the QCP in July-August.
Photographic works featured include 'Beyond Landscape' the haunting Peruvian and Australian nightscapes by Jorge Deustua and Marian Drew, a collaboration between the two from their respective countries and cultures after a chance meeting 3 years ago.
Sydneysider Svetlana Bailey evokes a sense of infinity in 'Boundless' with her fog bound photography, blurring the edges of objects and separating them from their environment, while Brisbane local Emma Leslie also blurs the lines as she documents Brisbane scenes with her 1930s Kodak photography in 'Nocturnes'.
After the rebuilding of Darwin post-cyclone Tracy the city lost much of its openness and character as natural haphazard form as replaced by sturdy function and in 'Limen' photographer Fiona Morrison sets out to highlight the sense of suburban hyper-reality that arises as buildings incongruent to their environs are saturated by night in artificial street lighting.
In other works Silvia Velez uses botanical documentation, in this case the Peruvian lily 'Alstroemelia' which has been altered, moved and modified over the centuries to the extent that its new 'improved' version is now sold back to the land from which its 'parent' originated; Peter Charuk preoccupies himself with the wind farm in 'Collateral Damage' and Robert Mercer moves into another realm with his 'Phone-cam Diaries' as he explores the space in time between taking and looking at a photograph.
