Ehibition Dates: 6 May – 28 May 2017
Devonport Regional Gallery
Devonport Regional Gallery presents the community exhibition, PORTAL, featuring 62 photographs from residents and visitors in Tasmania’s North West captured on Saturday 8 April 2017.
The community photography project captures 24 hours of coastal living through the lenses of people across the North West. Participants were encouraged to register their involvement through the Gallery’s website prior to Capture Day on 8 April – of which 88 registrations were collected. Participants were then asked to capture any moment from their day on Saturday 8 April from across the North West. Photographs were received from Temma to Squeaking Point and at various times across the 24 hour period.
“PORTAL provides us with a glimpse of life in this small corner of the world and celebrates the things and experiences we enjoy, cherish and love. Above all, PORTAL is a project about place – the places we inhabit and the places we explore. Place is integral to our identity and these photographs which have captured fleeting ordinary moments in our day, provide an insight into our identity through the places we call home and the places that lure us in.” – Dianne Sheehan, Education & Public Programs Officer, Devonport Regional Gallery
