Preview: Doorstop Portraits in Glebe

“In today’s tech savvy environment, creativity is all about choices. It’s about what I want to say, who my subject is, how and when I frame that subject and above all, it’s about the aesthetic decisions I choose to make.”

– North Sullivan

‘Doorstop Portraits in Glebe’: a solo photography exhibition featuring recent artworks by North Sullivan.

Focusing on the diverse characters of Glebe, esteemed photographer North Sullivan has explored his love of small cameras, creative post production and street portraiture. In stark contrast to his usual practice, North has chosen to shoot and process all portraits on his iPhone 4.

Considering the photographs are iPhone-derived, they possess an unusually intimate and professional quality and are a fond, nostalgic, local’s observations of this unique Sydney area.

Drop into the show’s opening, grab a drink and meet North this Friday night.
