Join us for the opening of New Photographers, returning for PHOTO 2024, showcasing work by Victoria’s most inspiring emerging photographers. This exhibition brings together six artists exploring concepts of construct, contrast, community, and the self. Their works are united by a unique approach to their subjects, ranging from humour to the surreal, and technique, including staging, assemblage and collage.

Kyle Archie-Knight’s ongoing series Cruising for a Bruising is at once a poignant and humorous reflection on his experience growing up queer in in the outer suburbs of Naarm (Melbourne). Cecilia Sordi Campos pushes the boundaries of photography to examine ideas of womanhood, identity and the body, while Erhan Tırlı combines a documentary and staged approach to explore long-term ethnography of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.

Teva Cosic’s work draws on personal and cultural narratives around family, history, tradition, and mythology to consider ideas of stability in the face of uncertain futures. Mixing documentary practices and found imagery, Pearce Leal explores the interrelationships between humans and fragile ecologies, and Nicholas Mahady work focuses on the relationship between atmosphere and image, and representing the unrepresentable.

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.
