Selected works from The Fall, 2017 – 2018 by Melbourne based photographer David Rosendale
David’s series ‘The Fall’ is an extensive 12 month photographic study of seasonal change & environment, in the Alpine region of Falls Creek in Victoria. Following the 2016’s exhibition of the same title, which comprised imagery captured exclusively in minimalist snow-covered landscape. In February 2017, David Rosendale was granted Artist in Residency at the Alpine Resort of Falls Creek in Victoria, embarking on a project that would document all 4 seasons and imbue the photographer’s role as observer throughout a year-long cycle of change.
David’s work seeks graphical and compositional harmony within the landscape, his artworks act as witness to the evidences human activity leaves upon it. He constantly travels and explores the lesser taken roads to find the next window on the world. Once a feel for a location is established, through careful planning and intuition, he ensures he is present at precisely the right moment, to allow the environment to reveal something unique to him & to the resultant image.
PUBLIC PROGRAM: Join David Rosendale, Mark Moehll and Joshua Thomas for an artists in conversation in the gallery on Sunday 11 November at 2pm. Free event. All welcome.
