Angus O'Callaghan is a street photographer. After buying his first camera at age 14 and becoming a WW11 photographer in The Middle East at age 17, now aged 94 and still photographing, Angus has recently been discovered and featured on various TV shows and print media. Prints from his most famous, three year iconic classic and candid Melbourne series from 50 years ago are available for purchase on the night. These colour and black and white time-capsule images were taken with medium format film cameras. They are masterfully printed in three sizes, 40 x 40 cm, 60 x 60 cm and 100 x 100 cm, both framed and unframed. Angus also ships his unframed prints across Australia, including more recent images from his digital photography. He will be signing copies of his very collectible, 256 page hard-cover coffee table photographic book of Melbourne at the launch, if not sold out prior.
Peter Ryan's photographic body of work is from his extensive travels around Australia and overseas. His creative eye for landscapes, wildlife and details include breath-taking images from Antarctica, Vietnam, South Africa, rural and outback Australia and Melbourne. A master of image processing, Peter's work takes each individual image to its maximum visual potential. Some images are printed straight onto glass and framed, providing an additional luminescence dimension to the work.
Robyn Wawn’s photography is heavily influenced by her career in graphic design and visual communication. These years of experience developed the ability to see the world as design, visualize what was in front of her eyes, crop in the camera and transform what was discovered into photographic art. Details of man-made structures, using simple elements of colour, line, texture, shape, pattern and geometry provide an abundance of surprising subject matter to create strong artwork images. In this style of work, it is equally as important what is left out as much as what is deliberately placed in these images. Each piece has a location and story behind it. The current design series is printed onto canvas and each image is a limited edition of five.
