PhotoAccess presents in the Huw Davies Gallery: A Beautiful Anxiety from Lynn Smith.
Exhibition dates: 12 August - 4 September 2016
Opening on Friday 12 August 2016 at 6pm
Exhibition to be opened by Magda Keaney, Senior Curator of Photography, Australian War Memorial.
‘Art can't change the world. But artists can ask questions, so that individuals and organisations in a position to affect change can do so’. This sentiment portrayed by photographer Lynn Smith, is explored in his exhibition.
A Beautiful Anxiety by mid-career Sydney-based artist Lynn Smith showcases a series of large-scale street noir photographic images. Using long exposures at night, Smith captures the street of Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, London, Paris and Berlin, devoid of people, using a Pentax medium format film camera. Smith’s photography speaks to a globalist sensibility. It hints at global anxieties yet portrays the still and calming beauty that comes with each night. Catalogue
