Australia Now: Light Years & ON FILM – PhotoAccess, Canberra

Australia Now: Light Years & ON FILM – PhotoAccess, Canberra

PhotoAccess presents in the Huw Davies Gallery two new exhibitions exploring the possibilities and parameters of film photography.

Exhibition dates 29 January – 22 February 2015.


Our first members’ exhibition for 2015, ON FILM showcases work by over 30 photographers creatively addressing the role of film.

Light Years

Light Years presents works drawn from the archive of the late Lin Richardson, a new acquisition to the PhotoAccess collection. Richardson’s works capture fragments of Canberra during the early 1970s, documenting festivals, protests, as well as aspects the photographer’s own personal life. Reflecting on the slippery truth and intimacy of the photographic image, six contemporary artists present new work in response to the archive. Artists: Madeline Bishop, Rowan Conroy, Hayley King, Mark Mohell, Scot Newman, Arthur (Lin) Richardson and Genevieve Swifte.
