The “A Week in Rainbow” photography project has taken another step forward with eleven local photographers submitting their work for the project’s exhibition which will be held at the Turbo Gallery next month.
The photographers are Alison Ey, Ben Gosling, Lauren Heinrich, Gracie Hurlstone, Steve Leach, Lesley Robinson, Peter Doxey, Beth Matuschka, Bronte Eckermann, Leonie Clarke and Les Graetz. Their photos cover many aspects of life in Rainbow and the surrounding district.
Anna White from Brunswick in Melbourne will be curating the exhibition. A talented artist, Anna has been involved in art exhibitions over the years. Her current interest in photography led to her solo exhibition, Neighbourhood, which ran at the Sofitel on Collins hotel from October 2018 until February 2019.
Anna is also involved in the Book Face Photographs project at the RMIT University Library. She has the difficult but exciting task of picking about thirty photos for the exhibition out of a few hundred taken by the photographers for the project.
Apart from art and photography Anna is also interested in dance. Her last visit to Rainbow was in April 2018 when she danced in Federal Street as part of the Embodied Landscape festival.
The exhibition will begin on August 8 at the Turbo Gallery with an afternoon to celebrate life in Rainbow as captured by the photographers to be held on Sunday August 18.
This event will be attended by Anna and it is hoped that most, if not all, those photographers who took part will be attending.
