It's been a a long journey to get to this point but we have finally made it to the exhibition! 2 years in the making, but really the last 5 months of working on this project daily has brought us to the finish line.
Now on at the Incinerator Art Space and part of the Head On Photo Festival 2018 is my exhibition of photographs from 2005/6 and 2016 as a "Then and Now' series.
The exhibition includes a collection of 26 images, some as compositions that highlight the profession of time from 2005 to now, as these children have grown.
The opening night was on the 9th of May and we had an overwhelming turnout of about 250 people. Gail Kelly opened the show and she did a fantastic job of highlighting the issues of HIV/AIDS in South Africa but also how we can help the situation for these many orphans showing our support.
All the profits and donations raised from this exhibition will be donated. Currently we are at about $15000 of our $30000 goal.
I have had some really great sponsors that have helped with this Exhibition and I can't thank them enough. Thank you to Momento Pro who have helped me create a beautiful book that you can purchase (available in online shop), Vision Image Lab who have done the most beautiful printing, Amaraiso Framing who tied the exhibition together with their amazing framing, Toto Branding and Design - especially Wendy who created all the beautiful invitations and posters, and to The Boomerang Project and Apheda who are helping with collecting the donations.
The exhibition will run until the 27th of May. I will be doing a special artist talk on the 19th of May at 2pm if you are interested in hearing about the project.
Come and say hi and see the show at the Incinerator Art Space, 2 Small Street, Willoughby.
Wed - Sun, 10 - 4pm. 10th - 27th May.
