*The acts that have gone before have influenced those standing around the foyer. They are all there due to circumstance. Choice or reason.
Some are with old friends, others with new and then there are those having a quiet cigarette on their own in the alleyway. All are wondering how it’s going to play out.
The venue hangs somewhere amongst the far borders of the State and 20 years had passed since the last 50 ft under. The ladder was climbed, daylight struck, then the bell rang.
Pete Hawk is a portrait, documentary and street photographer from Sydney.
A former news journalist at the Sydney Morning Herald, Hawk has done series on bullfighting in south-west France, Parisian hairdressing salons and the Elvis Festival in Parkes NSW amongst others.
His work is a mixture of expression and visual storytelling, a documentation of the obscure and the everyday life.
His latest work, ‘Intermission’, is set in central and north western NSW. It drifts between the personal and the depiction of life on the land.
Hawk spent 2 weeks and drove over 4,000 kilometres alone to complete the project.
Opening night - Thursday the 27th of August 6 - 9pm
