In this exhibition and an accompanying photographic slide show and artist talk, Benjamin Prabowo Sexton presents a narrated catalogue of found and created images that reflect on the decline in average human attention span in an image saturated world.

To complement the selection of new photographic works—unique silver gelatin prints combining painting and documentary photography with language—Sexton’s slide show and artist talk will juxtapose verbal and visual communication, interweaving personal anecdotes and observations. The work explores the gaps that can occur between their form and content, intention and effect.

Non-linear and conversational in form, the presentation will invite reflections on how we pay attention to images and the ephemeral conditions that can shift how we experience them.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
