18.05.17 Exhibition Launch: Shadows Are Cast By Things And People

Thursday 18 May
6.00pm - 8.00pm

Project Space Gallery
72 Oxford Street
Darlinghurst, NSW 2010


The Australian Centre for Photography (ACP) presents the exhibition Shadows Are Cast By Things And People. The exhibition gathers four photographers from Australia, Russia and the United States. Through their compelling photographic work Jordan Madge, Irina Rozovsky, Daniel Shea and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa explore the intersection between documentary realism, fiction and question the nature of truth.


Using a true crime story, a place or a time as source material, the narratives distil a much larger truth than the sum of facts. Through metaphor and allegory, this exhibition of new documentary work explores the poetic and political narratives of social identity, place and history.


The exhibition is curated by The Heavy Collective, represented by Jack Harries, as part of ACP’s Carte Blanche Program.


Limited space. RSVP for Opening Event is essential.
