Seven Hunter photographers are displaying work in the Look Twice exhibition at Cessnock Regional Art Gallery for the next month, including the Newcastle Herald’s Jonathan Carroll.
The exhibition is curated by Jamie Gilmore, of Studio DC 3 in Hamilton, and features his work along with images by David Oliver, Easton Chang, Kylie Foley, Kirsten Woodforth and Doug Coleman.
It has a wide range of subject matter and is said to challenge viewers’ understanding of the photographic medium and its possibilities.
Carroll, who recently won the Kennedy Award for outstanding portrait, is displaying 14 portraits depicting homelessness and four sports images.
The Kennedy Awards recognise excellence in NSW journalism. Winning the portrait prize is an achievement Carroll has been close to before, but he secured the award for 2018 with his portrait of Maddison Ranse, who featured in a youth homelessness story.
“For as long as I can remember, homelessness has fascinated me,” Carroll said.
The exhibition runs until September 14. The gallery is open Tuesday to Sunday.
