InRetrospect | Shutterspeed- Opening Night Photos

Shutterspeed in Byron Bay last month was our most successful photographic exhibition to date. Ali Mitton and Toby Burrows were the hit of the show with three of Ali's atmospheric photographs selling out of their edition in days, and all of the works that Toby Burrows sold out! There was a great deal of interest and support in all of the wonderful works shown, so thank to all the wonderful artists who made this such a special show! The opening night saw the who's who in the Byron bay photographic scene comig to support the artists on show, thanks for all who came to the opening night, and check out the pics to see if we capured you, unfortunately our resident photographer Alberto Sanchez was enjoying himself so much that he forgot to take photos until the end of the evening.

This show saw eight of our artists come together with individual photographs and separate bodies of work, which might be experienced as instances of the artists' persistent interest in mirroring. In some cases the works narrate what the mirror never tells and in others the photographs serve as a magnifying mirror - wiring humans and our environments together. Shutterspeed asks questions with both beautiful and haunting figurative imagery and pays homage to our culture with a photographic nod at a larger history of landscape representation.
