We are delighted to announce that six Australian and International photographers will be taking part in a new and exciting exhibition aptly titled “How the Landscape Unites Us”.
To date the exhibition, which will be shown at the Pine Street Art Gallery Space, Chippendale, features the works of three Australian photographers: Ann Vardanega (QLD), Robyn Hills (QLD) and April Ward (WA). Also featured are three International photographers: Michael Knapstein (USA), Paula Neilson (NZ) and Beatriz Vargas (Columbia). Each photographic artist will bring their unique understanding to the theme that underpins this exhibition, which collectively will speak locally and globally to how the landscape unites us, regardless of where we live or the places we love to visit.
This exhibition will be displayed during the HeadOn Photo Festival at Pine Street Gallery – opening on May 19th, 2014. It will run for two weeks. A book of the same name will accompany the exhibition.
More details soon as they unfold.

Come join with us and celebrate the anniversary of Edward Steichen’s Family of Man exhibition (1952-1955), and make a submission of a coherent photo essay of 5 images to http://www.theworldfamily.net.

Dawne Fahey, representing Fier Institute, has undertaken a year long artist in residency program with Sydney Youth Orchestra (SYO – http://www.syo.com.au)), documenting their Orchestral Family. This project will become a print exhibition and book publication, due for release in 2013, to coincide with SYO’s 40th birthday celebrations.
