Still Point

Still Point

"I think I've been taking two pulses… the pulse of the society around me, and my own pulse."

                Robert McFarlane

Robert McFarlane has been photographing Australia and Australians for over five decades. Still Point is an exhibition which showcases images from his extensive archive that define his style, exploring how he achieves the intimate and yet iconic portraiture for which he is known and allowing the audience to grasp his natural affinity for light. The exhibition also includes images never intended for publication; his little-known collection of landscape photos and intimate moments with friends and colleagues. 

Still Point allows us insight into not just Australia over the past 50 years, but the world, as we view individuals and moments captured by one of Australia's best documentary photographers.
