An Aerial photographic exhibition focusing on the goldfields region of Western Australia.The sensual colours and the sheer vastness of this land from the air, rekindle the ‘knowing’ of how ancient this land.
A beauty unlike any other in this great state, Western Australia.
Opens Saturday 3rd October at 6pm- 8 pm Former United Nations photographer Martine Perret , returns to the gallery with her second exhibition. Gungurrunga Ngawa (Look Above) which was shot above the Western Australian Goldfields salt lakes as part of an on-going project documenting both the landscape and the regions inhabitants.
Martine Perret’s first exhibition and book launch ‘From Above’ was an aerial photoshoot of the beautiful and serene south west region of Margaret River. With danger and ’hanging from a helicopter’ no stranger to Martine, this next exhibition is an aerial exploration of the goldfields and the first step in a much larger project of work that has been in Martine’s mind for some time- “to capture the interconnectedness of people with the land, the culture and identity expressed with languages that today are considered endangered.”
The beauty in these photographs- Martine’ s next body of work- closely resemble an abstract painting with the textures added by the elements, traces of animals tracks and the people. These astonishing compositions under the incredibly creative eye and sense of light- of Martine are inspirational.
The sensual colours and the sheer vastness of this land from the air, rekindle the ‘knowing’ of how ancient this land. A beauty unlike any other in this great state, Western Australia.
