‘SPAIN ON FILM’ PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION – March 2015 // The CCP, Adelaide

For the first time in many years, I’m exhibiting some personal work – the medium format series ‘SPAIN ON FILM’. Captured on a Yashica Twin Lens Reflex, the series depicts the various streets, characters, landscapes and light I encountered on a two week road trip across the country last year.

The exhibition runs from March 4th – April 8th. The gallery hours are as follows:
Monday–Thursday 9am–5pm
Friday 9am–5pm
Saturday 10am–3pm

The Light Gallery at the Centre for Creative Photography
138 Richmond Road, Marleston SA

Special thanks to my friends at Thirds Fine Art Printing, Mike Lim and Aaron Blake for their invaluable help in putting this show together.

 

“Lucy has focussed her deliberate gaze to isolate views of Spain and its environs… No. 11 with the crucifix and clouds which shroud the mountain, only to draw back in No. 20 to reveal the full splendorous scene – details which punctuate this exhibition regularly throughout; the church spire rising behind the wall in Alhambra in Seville in No. 3; the man reading his newspaper in the light in No. 6; the isolated light playing over the floor on the room in No 16; a fabulous exercise in physical dynamism as seen in a public space with No. 15…

This type of exhibition rewards the scrutiny of the viewer which the medium format camera records with impunity. The prints are lustrous and maintain the integrity of the medium of film which to this day is still superior to the digital file.

Lucy, I’ve seen you grow from afar since you left the CCP in 2008 and Adelaide for Melbourne in 2009… you’ve got eyes. You are always honing your vision and changing the dynamic of how you photograph, yet with this exhibition you have reminded us and yourself where you have come from. The pacing of the show is wonderful and it flows gracefully around this gallery. 

Congratulations, it’s my pleasure to be a part of this latest offering from you.” – From the opening speech from Gavin Blake, founder of the Centre for Creative Photography.

Shae + Mitch // Festival Wedding in the Bush // She Takes Pictures He Makes Films

Shae + Mitch are the ultimate power couple – professional sportspeople, co-founders of their activewear label Once Upon a Run, and clear mega-soul-mates. Their joyous love for each other and the life they’re creating together is palpable, and truly inspiring for everyone they meet.

Their festival wedding was as gorgeous as they come. Planned and styled by Sooti Event + Styling and held on New Year’s Eve on Mitch’s family’s property in rural Victoria, the party lasted well into the morning, seeing in the new year in the best way possible. The newlyweds then camped with their friends and family in the very grass Mitch played in as a kid. Alastair and I were honoured to be invited along to the party as She Takes Pictures He Makes Films, and are thrilled to share their story with you now.

Massive congratulations to you, gorgeous Shae + Mitch. x

**UPDATED** – Alastair’s film is live! Featuring an all-Australian soundtrack from Young Vincent and Dan White, plus a title illustration from artist Caro Facelli.

…and that’s how it’s done.

PBS Drive Live 2015 // Black Cab + GL + Lowtide

I don’t get a lot of time for my music photography (my first love) these days – it’s hard to fit it into the craziness of a busy summer wedding season. But whenever my friends at PBS FM Community Radio call, I come running.

The PBS Drive Live is a week long series of live on-air performances, featuring the cream of the local music scene. This year I was honoured to crawl around in the studios whilst shoegazers Lowtide, Electronic funk/soul duo GL, and epic drone and electronic outfit Black Cab played their sets. All three acts put on phenomenal shows.

Here’s my view of what went down.
