2nd May -15th May 2016
Three Sydney photo-artists (Meredith, Metcalfe and Thommen) invite you to see how they have each interpreted an art-nude photoshoot with the same model on the same location at the same time.
The shoot took place on a sunny Monday morning in December 2015 near Cronulla with an internationally acclaimed fine-art model.
Photographers normally prefer to work alone but chose to collaborate on this occasion so that they could learn from each-other and understand more about their creative philosophies.
The exhibition reveals that the three photographers represent their subject in vastly different ways. The images cover the full spectrum of styles from monochrome fine-art through to contemporary almost abstract interpretations of the female form.
The artists hope that visitors will enjoy not only the images and the spectrum of creative styles but also challenge themselves to consider how they portray the world when they take a photograph.
Naked Landscapes: relationships with nature
Flesh and stone. Nude, naked, stripped bare. Natural untouched environments. Humanity respecting and worshiping Gaia. Humility for our bountiful, yet threatenedmother nature.
In these works Len Metcalf explores our spiritual connection with the natural world. He finds great peace and spirituality from this connection. Fearful of humanity’sloss of connection with nature, he searches for reconnection. Exploring beauty in its purest forms. Finding peace again in mother nature.
Len has been photographing for as long as he can remember. Creating paper based works of art is his passion. Len teaches photography and continues to immerse himself in incredible natural vistas, camera in hand, in search of beauty.
