Exchanging Views

Jo Brown and Tom Bradley

Jo Brown and Tom Bradley have been creative partners for many years traveling together to unusual and remote locations. As each photographer interprets these journeys in their own individual style, vignettes of natural and historical worlds appear to inspire the viewer to imagine what may have come before the taking of the photograph.

Frontline Forestry Fire Fighters
Curated by Karlie Shaughnessy

With only their cell phones as cameras, frontline forest fire fighters have been encouraged by the curator of the exhibition to take photographs of their experiences. The results are incredible photographs that reflect the level of intensity they face in their efforts to control the often powerful and unpredictable fire events.
