Stu Spence’s photographs are oblique observations of fleeting moments. Ambiguous in meaning, they wait for interpretation and narrative. He is a photographic artist not afraid of ‘blur ‘or ‘grain’, or the breaking of conventions. This exhibition illustrates the storytelling possibilities of the photographic medium with original interpretations from writers, poets and some of Australia’s most celebrated songwriters, all inspired by a Stu Spence image. Curated by Ross Heathcote.
