The exhibition will feature important work by award winning photographers such as Katrin Koenning (PSC teacher), Miriam Charlie, Pilar Mata Dupont, Elvis Richardson, Mohini Chandra, Tom Nicholson and Cherine Fahd. Pippa was inspired by these artists, who create work that looks at how society works and portray their understandings of the various rules of engagement between citizens, the state and the environment. The subject matter is particularly relevant to contemporary society as we feel the contracts and agreements between us stretch and (sometimes) break.

Katrin’s series ‘The Crossing’ delves into the ‘fractured relationship’ between man and environment. Printed by ThePrintShop @ PSC, Katrin will reveal, for the first time in Melbourne, a first instalment of the larger, long-form work. Following on from her recent exhibition of the work at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney as part of 'Transfer', which also saw her steer a series of educational engagements in collaboration with ACP. Her exhibition here in Melbourne is a much anticipated event.
