Celebrating the work of two extraordinary young talents in Magnum Photos, we officially invite the public to join Le Space Gallery in ushering in two major works on show by photographers, Nanna Heitmann and Sim Chi Yin.

Both installations are award-winning bodies of work and Australian premieres. Heitmann’s exhibition, “Hiding from Baba Yaga” won her the prestigious Leica Oska Barnack Award for best newcomer in 2019 and Sim’s exhibition commission for the 2017 the Nobel Peace Prize—won by the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons—was also a recent winner of the 2020 Jimei x Arles Discovery Award.

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.
