Photo of the Week: Lyndal Irons

It is shaping up to be a great year for Sydney-based photographer Lyndal Irons. She is the lucky recipient of the 2015 Pool Grant, which she’ll use to complete and exhibit her fascinating series On Parramatta Road. And later this month her series Physie will be on show at the State Library of NSW. The world of physical culture is a unique one and Lyndal gives us a wonderful peek inside.

My younger sister did physie for a while and I remember being equally puzzled and intrigued by the odd movements, especially the ‘corners’, and emphasis on hair and make-up. This series brought me back to my childhood and I look forward to checking out the exhibition and more from the series.
