… featuring local music photographers Dane Beesley, Stephen Booth, Justin Edwards, Kylie Keene, Aaron Sammut, Elleni Toumpas, James Adams, Kristen Ashton, Joshua Collings, Josh Woning, Charlyn Cameron, Chris James, Stuart Blythe and more.

UnderExposed is an exhibition featuring some of the best – established and emerging – music photographers in Brisbane. Bringing together those select shooters who have captured the visual side of Brisbane’s aural history – be it with emerging local bands, or international ones – UnderExposed aims to showcase that fleeting moment in time where a subject, ordinarily so intense and public, is caught in a period of stillness and reflection: the essence of the show, the artist, encapsulated in that one shot.

Brisbane Bands pt 1 (1988 music documentary)

Here’s an interesting 1988 documentary titled ‘Brisbane Bands’ we found on youTube.

This documentary focuses on the isolation and struggle many Brisbane punk bands had to endure in the face of conservative Brisbane during the 1970’s.

Mark Callaghan (GANGgajang/The Riptides), Ed Kuepper (The Saints), Robert Forster (The Go-Betweens) and Ed Wreckage (The Leftovers) speak about growing up in Brisbane during the 1970’s and forming bands.

Ed Kuepper reflects on the Saints’ classic single ‘(I’m) Stranded’ and the single’s promo-video.
