unsensored 07: film, on wall
Last Friday, I was at the opening of UNSENSORED 07. It was a crowded event, with gallery-goers spilling to the back of the gallery, as well as onto High St. UNSENSORED is touted as the first annual exhibition, of a group on Flickr, called the Melbourne Silver Mine.
What made it so special (besides my friends amazing photography on the walls)? The fact that its all film-based. Some made even with toy cameras like the Holga or Diana. Quality, is amazing. Shows you that fancy digital cameras alone, do not make a good photo.
I find it an interesting mashup, of Flickr, and RedBubble. Yes, RedBubble, a company based right in the heart of Melbourne, makes some amazing prints (and from what I gather, frames). All the artwork were printed by them. Presentation is very professional. Take a look at the SilverMiner’s RedBubble page, if you fancy buying some artwork.
More importantly though, head to the exhibition, and be breath-taken by the 24 photos. I understand that at any given time, one of the photographers in the exhibition will be on duty, and will give valuable information about the photos, and be there for a regular chat. Details:
When? 26 October – 10 November 2007 (Tuesday – Friday, 12-5pm, Saturday 10am-4pm)
Where? Kerala Gallery, 263, High St., Northcote
How do I get there? Driving is a possibility, there’s plenty of parking. Alternatively, take Tram Number 86, and get off at Stop 32 (stops pretty much right in front of Kerala)
