Today we are more used to making, taking and consuming photographs than ever before. Lumina Collective’s exhibition Echoes explores the ways in which photographic image-making in Australia is linked to questions of identity and place, and to generational stories that span many oceans.
Founded in 2017 Lumina Collective comprises eight leading female Australian photographers who are committed to revealing diverse stories and narratives. Each artist brings to the collective a unique voice and vision and seeks to engage viewers with their ideas, through modes of documentary photography that extend beyond linear visual storytelling processes.
Echoes investigates ideas of identity through explorations of family history, loss and trauma, home and self, migration and environmental upheaval within the scope of social and cultural Australian identities.
Lumina Collective are Donna Bailey, Chloe Bartram, Jessie Boylan, Aletheia Casey, Anna Maria Antoinette D’Addario, Lyndal Irons, Morganna Magee and Sarah Rhodes.
This exhibition is supported by the Harold and Gwenneth Harris Foundation, The Department of Medical Humanities at the University of Sydney, Pholpo, Canon Australia, High Res Imaging and La Trobe University.
