WORKS (SELECTED) Sight Unseen exhibition (Centre for Contemporary Photography)

As part of Open House Melbourne, CCP presents Site Unseen – a group exhibition of architectural photography. July 15th-31st

Curated by photographer Tom Ross alongside Fleur Watson, Executive Director of Open House Melbourne and the Centre for Architecture Victoria, fourteen Australian photographers explore the potential that is unlocked when architecture is viewed as subject rather than object.

To view architecture photography as objective documentation is to ignore the photographer’s point of view. What does the photographer bring to the image, and indeed, is the photographer’s presence welcome?

Site Unseen aims to communicate the emotional experience of place, as well as the diversity that exists in architectural and built form photography, in medium, typology, and the photographic community itself.

Bringing their traditionally private responses to architecture into the public space of CCP’s four galleries, these photographers find wonder and grace in surroundings and structure. Experienced largely on a subconscious level, architecture can contribute to moments of harmony and moments of friction in our every day lives. This exhibition calls for a moment of pause; to examine the built environment and our interaction with it through the lens of this incredibly talented cohort of photographers.
