Two of our very own Videre Collective members were selected as finalists in the Art and About Australian Life prize!
My photo 'Like a Prayer' taken inside Gallipoli Mosque in Auburn and Ess' photo 'Bedroom Settings' taken in the heart of Sydney's CBD are currently on display in billboard size format at Hyde Park, Sydney until 9 October. I was fortunate enough to be taken into the Mosque and allowed to take photos of my friend as he completed his prayers. The large size print really evokes the feeling of grandeur and beauty of the Mosque, which is what I was trying to capture.
Here is the photo on the launch night along with a few others from inside the Mosque.
