Transition in focus

TWO local artists have won a commission by Perth city council to add to the city’s ongoing photographic record of Perth.

Graham Miller’s work A Place in the Sun focuses on people captured candidly around the city streets or lounging in local public spaces. As a foil, Jacqueline Ball’s work Swimming Home focuses on the built environment, the people just incidentally dotted amongst the towering architecture.

Opening the exhibition Perth councillor Reece Harley said the photos showed the old, the new, and Perth’s current transition.

The photographers have used their cameras and their creativity to explore, reflect and reveal new perspectives of the city,” Cr Harley said.

“This commission captures Perth in the midst of rapid transformation while retaining essential characteristics familiar to all of us.”

It’s the city’s third photographic commission and it’s at the Perth Centre for Photography, 18 Colin Street, West Perth, until November 13.
