You are invited to celebrate the launch of David Rosetzky’s Photobook, ‘Double Exposures’ published by M.33, designed by Anna Zagala/Sweet Polka with an essay by Senior Curator of Photography at NGA, Dr Shaune Lakin and a Q & A between the artist and Hoda Afshar. To be launched by Jason Smith, Director and CEO, Geelong Gallery.

Rosetzky’s use of the double-exposure results in a single, combined image that is created through a process of chance – and the random placement of pictorial elements within the frame. This process enables the artist a fluid and hybrid approach to representation – and is suggestive of relative and shifting states of being and ways of looking that extends beyond conventional portrait formats. This ongoing series explores new ways of representing queer, non-binary, and marginal identities through photography. David Rosetzky: Double Exposures has been realised with assistance from the Australian Government through the Australia Council.

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.
