OK so I have been putting together (what I realised is my first) solo show … titled Zoologica: a photographic study of life through death. Exploring zoological specimens, the works encourage you to ponder the nature of scientific collection, death and preservation. The series comprises 12 monochromatic prints, printed on Canson Baryta Photographique by Stephen Best of Macquarie Editions in Braidwood. The final series of 12 is shown in the gallery below. I’ve gone with hanging the prints unframed using linen hinges and small tacks. I’m really impressed with the printing quality and the light curl of the paper really adds to the apparent depth of the images. It’s a great feeling when you see your own work on a wall … and a real buzz when there’s a series of your own work up like this.

I hung the show yesterday with gallery owner Michael and it looks fantastic … it’ll look even better when fully lit.

The opening is Wednesday eveningย at 6pm and I’m rather looking forward to it ๐Ÿ™‚
