Preludes 1 | Sylvé Colless

Sydney photogrpaher Sylve Colless’ latest project,Preludes 1 is part of an ongoing exhibition series exploring the psychological through images of the Physical.

These photographs were shot in Gnarloo - part of the Carnarvon region in remote Western Australia. It is a unique project aiming to capture varying feminine forms set against the elemental desert landscapes of this region while focusing on an array of natural tones to establish a connection between the two.

The ever changing complexion of this landscape beautifully illustrates the juxtaposition of diverse elements working in beautiful harmony. Nowhere is this more powerful than in the coastal margin where the deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean clash with sand and rock edges of the Australian continent.

Gnarloo the traditional land of the West Thalanyji People – an ancient and evocative place where physical and metaphysical are interwoven. This raw and beautiful coastal landscape gives heart and identity to it's traditional owners – the remaining significant sites & archeological evidence of the area represent a deep association that their ancestors have held for thousands of years occupying in this incredible country.


Preludes 1 opened on Friday 28th of November at Mild Manners Gallery in Sydney.

Born Too Late | Jesse Lizotte

Born Too Late is Australian photographer Jesse Lizotte’s second exhibition of work, a follow-up to 2015’s hyped show Lowrider, a series that sprang from his immersion in LA’s Chicano lowrider culture and identities who make it.

With a camera in hand for longer than he can remember, Lizotte’s fascination with travel and documenting subcultures started at a young age. During his time working on Lowrider, he formed a bond with a central character who’d eventually introduce Jesse to an associate with links to the Japanese underworld. Before he knew it, Jesse found himself deep in the back blocks of Tokyo meeting a new group of young Japanese men struggling with identity while paving a way for themselves within the insular and staunchly traditional criminal underworld.

As time goes on, this next generation looks increasingly to western influences such as outlaw motorcycle clubs and American street gangs for the way they’re wanting to be seen.

Born Too Late looks at a subtle comparison between old ways and the new.

These Things Take Time || RVCA Corner Gallery

Melbourne artists Michael Danischewski and Andrew Johnson are joining forces to exhibit a new series of photographic works. These Things Take Time concentrates on quiet observations reflecting forged memories within unknown landscapes.

These images evoke an understanding of travel and personal growth only encountered with the freedom and inspiration of time on the open road.


Both photographers work primarily with analogue process to enhance their aesthetic, a skill they've both refined after countless hours under the haze of darkroom lights where they first met in their youth.


Having spent the years since honing their craft, These Things Take Time is a celebration of free spirit and reflection of youth. It's a showcase of years well spent taking opportunity with a camera over shoulder and pocket full of film...
