Here’s some stuff to get you up and running for the year.

Miscellanea Photogenica

PhotoSpace is pleased to present Miscellanea Photogenica salted paper prints by Ellie Young

Miscellanea Photogenica is homage to the father of photography, William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877). Drawn from the art, craft and science of photography the Ellie’s images are evocative yet quiet and wistful. Offering a timeless quality, reflecting the natural world though the exploration of texture, shape and design. The salted paper print was discovered in 1834 by Talbot and is still considered one of the most beautiful delicate hand crafted photographic print processes. Ellie has studied and explored the salt print extensively at many levels. Her work is held in public and private collections nationally and internationally including the State Library of Victoria.

Opening: Saturday 1st March 4pm – 7pm, by Assoc. Professor Gale Spring (RMIT University)
Exhibition duration: Wednesday 27th February to Saturday 22nd March

PhotoSpace is at 34 Dight St. Collingwood

Role Play Portrait Photography

25 October 2007 to 6 April 2008
Photography Gallery, Level 3
Admission free

Portrait photography is a complex and fascinating area of photographic practice that, at its heart, has a dynamic process of collaboration between the sitter, the viewer and the camera operator. In this exhibition, a provocative interchange between historical and contemporary photography has been created to suggest how photographers work to construct, question or reflect the notion of ‘role playing’.

Role Play contains three broad thematic groupings, namely allegorical portraiture (H.P Robinson, Julia Margaret Cameron, Cindy Sherman, William Wegman, Rose Farrell and George Parkin); portraits that either typecast or question social roles (August Sander, Edweard Muybridge, Anne Ferran); and theatrical photographs in which the sitter acts a role, (including G.B Poletto’s wardrobe photographs of Ava Gardner in On the Beach).
