Exhibition: Matt Palmer | Images of Note

Images Of Note PosterMatt Palmer’s passion for live music and photography took him from shooting in small, sweaty clubs to the massive stages of festivals like Big Day Out.

Now the award-winning photographer presents the best of his work in the stunning exhibition Images of Note. It spans six years of live music in Australia, in Brisbane and the Gold Coast. It features music legends Iggy Pop, Pearl Jam and Metallica along with some of Australia’s biggest names, from Nick Cave to Powderfinger and Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens, and captures future stars in the ascendant like Gotye and Paramore. If this was a festival, it would be the line-up of a lifetime.

The Christmas Tree Bucket: Trent Parke’s Family Album VISUAL
“It was there – while staring into that bright red bucket, vomiting every hour on the hour for fifteen hours straight – that I started to think how strange families, suburbia, life, vomit and, in particular, Christmas really was…” Trent Parke. So began Trent Parke’s latest and much-anticipated new body of work. The Christmas Tree Bucket is humour of the blackest hue. In a dazzling display of virtuoso storytelling Parke snaps the family rituals of Christmas with the in-laws and builds a gritty gothic tale of a nightmare lurking in the suburban shadows. Operatic in its vision and darkly satirical in its style, The Bucket is a photographic masterpiece destined for cult status. Trent Parke, the first Australian to become a Full Member of the renowned photographers’ cooperative Magnum Photo Agency, is considered one of the most innovative and challenging young photographers of his generation. He received numerous national and international awards, including five Gold Lenses from the International Olympic Committee and World Press Photo awards in 1999, 2000 and 2005. In 2003, Parke was awarded the prestigious international W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography for his series Minutes to Midnight.
