Festival de Photo

The second Queensland Festival of Photography kicked off this month and will continue running throughout April. So far I've attended two of the exhibits, Jacky Redgate: Visions From Her Bed at the IMA, and Memoirs: Selection of Photographs from the Daryl Hewson Collection at the SLQ's Studio Gallery. The Jacky Redgate exhibit was personal, beautiful, pristine and haunting. Themes of memory and recollection have always featured prominently in Jacky's work, with many of the works in this exhibit inspired by images she imagined while hospitalised as a young child. Daryl Hewson's collection is said to be the most comprehensive archive of photography in Queensland. The standout piece for me was a photo of Nick Cave taken in 1991 by Peter Milne. Nick was smiling in the photo. A rarity, as I've not seen many photos of Nick Cave smiling. The festival consists of over twenty participating galleries and venues showcasing an expansive and diverse range of contemporary photography, so there's sure to be something to please every photographic enthusiast.

Taking photos was not permitted at the exhibitions but I took a photo outside the SLQ of this little beastie I found basking in the sun at Southbank.


"I am the lizard king. I can do anything. So if you don't stop blocking my sun, invading my personal space & leave me in peace, I may eat you"

Cripes. Grouchy little beastie.

I LOVE the little beastie best of all! Your photo of him/her is beautiful! (Must be a girl...nice nails). I have to admit, I'm sort of glad these little goodies don't hang out where I live. But a really COOL picture!

tsk tsk, there you go propogating the image that Australia is full of bizarre and dangerous creatures roaming the streets of our cities! We have a giant bearded dragon like that one that seems to live smack bang in the middle of the drive way and believes that if it ducks its head slightly it becomes invisible, and runs away from no one and nothing.

we used to have 1 of this ( or its cousin!) living right in our garden. Ours is the monitor lizard.
