Rob Love At the End of the Street  

Offical opening: 26th August at 2pm  Ellie Young

Runs August 22nd to October 21st 2018

A chance acquisition of a 1950s Zeiss Contax reignited Rob’s passion for black and white film photography.

With a bayside environment a short walk away, the Contax, after a little bit of tidying up, has been back at work.

The end of Rob’s street leads on to Port Phillip Bay. That brings wonderful interactions with light, sky, water and people and rich pickings for black and white photography.

The Zeiss Contax IIIA is also relatively discreet and that helps in spontaneous settings to produce this hand crafted silver gelatine exhibition, “At the End of the Street.” More Information

Underworld: Mugshots from the Roaring Twenties

Curated by Holly Schulte – It’s almost 100 years since New South Wales police used glass-plate negatives to photograph suspects in custody. These negatives are a direct link to that moment in time, and provide evidence about photographic technology and methods in the 1920s.
