PROMO: Portraits from prime time

PROMO: Portraits from prime time
22 March - 9 June 2014

This exhibition goes behind-the-scenes and into the spotlight with professional photographers and the stars of Australian television, music and comedy. Whether negotiating the logistics of a big publicity shoot or quietly capturing moments on set during filming, the photographers' stories are intriguing and compelling. PROMO: Portraits from prime time offers a fascinating insight into the contemporary photographic portraits that surround us and the art and skill of the professional photographers who create them. The exhibition features the work of Peter Brew-Bevan, Martin Philbey, John Tsiavis, Ben King, Giovanni Lovisetto, Abigail Varney, Michelle Day and Julian Kingma.
