PhotoAccess presents in the HUW DAVIES GALLERY:
Blessings of the Triple Gem by Chris Whitelaw
Exhibition dates: 4-27 April 2014
Opening event 6pm Friday 4 April. The exhibition was officially opened by the High Commissioner for Sri Lanka His Excellency Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe.
Blessings of the Triple Gem is a visually rich exploration of Buddhist traditions in Sri Lanka, as seen through the eyes of Australian photographer Chris Whitelaw. Chris has developed a long association with the Sri Lankan community of Hambantota through charitable giving. In 2011, a visit to Hambantota provided Chris with the impetus for a new body of work focusing on the ever-present influence of Buddhist philosophy in Sinhalese life. The result is a sympathetic and considered portrait by an engaged observer.
(please note: PhotoAccess will be closed on Friday 18 to Monday 21 April, and on Friday 25 April)
