The Presenting gallery shows selected images from, or associated with, physical exhibitions by South Australian art photographers that are outside the physical exhibitions centred around the Light Path’s bi-annual field trips. Physical exhibitions last a month or so, then they disappear into the dusty corners of people’s personal memories. Over time these memories fade.
Presenting is designed to show an online selection of images from these exhibitions in order to preserve a small part of these exhibitions for public viewing. This helps to retain a sense of the recent history in South Australia’s photographic culture.
The first line in the gallery is work by Adam Jan Dutkiewicz, The Path to Salt; the second line is work by Gary Sauer-Thompson, Mallee Routes: Photographing the Mallee 2019; the third line is work by
Adam Jan Dutkiewicz, The Path to Salt, from the RSASA satellite exhibition at The Rising Sun Inn in Kensington, Adelaide, 2020 with David Baker, Philip David, Marilyn Jacobs and Gerhard Rittter. The Path to Salt is a photographic essay of the salt fields at Dry Creek, Adelaide.
Gary Sauer-Thompson, Mallee Routes: Photographing the Mallee 2019 from an exhibition of the Mallee Routes project at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery in 2019-2020. This exhibition had 3 themes: absent history, space/place, unknown futures. A review of the exhibition.
