Shape is the form of an object or its external boundary, outline, or external surface. Shape can be a compositional element or a structure, it can be geometric or organic, sharp or soft, voluminous or sporadic. Shape and it’s many forms are a constant in our three-dimensional world.
With this in mind, PhotoAccess members have interpreted the shapes they encounter in daily life and explored how geometric and organic shapes influence the world around us.
Take Shape includes: Ulli Brunnschweiler, Alan Charlton, Louise Curham, Robyn Dadds, Tod Davis, Suzie Edwards, Yi Evans, Tony Fleming, Susan Henderson, Marilyn Hutchinson, Angus Kendon, Rory King, Andrée Lawrey, Kathryn Leo, Marie Lund, Trevor Lund, Helen McFadden, Andre Moon, Kleber Osorio, Judy Parker, Keith Penhallow, Yvette Perine, Luke Power, Amanda Pratt, Brian Rope, Jenni Savigny, Ian Skinner, Brian Stewart, Philippa Tetlow, Josh Thurecht-Luckham, Anne-Maree Turner, Peter Watson and Grant Winkler.

PhotoAccess holds two member exhibitions each year.
These exhibitions allow PhotoAccess to engage with and showcase the works of our members. We theme each exhibition, giving you an idea to work towards, with this common theme bringing all the works together to form an eclectic but cohesive exhibition. We keep these themes as broad and open to interpretation as we can, allowing you creative freedom. Often our themes are set around a specific size of works, style of photography or a broad subject matter. We encourage you to interpret each theme within your own photo-based practice – it’s you, our valued members and community that make these exhibitions to wonderful, with the opening events being an opportunity to catch up, enjoy a drink and see some great art!
