Faces of... Personalities in Print
The Faces of... project is celebration of our community, our unsung heroes, our everyday people who support our region and the people within it. We are surrounded by individuals who make the world a better place simply by being who they are and doing what they do, often without recognition and usually without thinking that what they do is anything special. These are the people that our communities can never do without, the people who make us feel a sense of connection, the people who drive the fundraisers, the people who contribute to our clubs and organisations, the people who mow the lawns and cook the sausage sizzles, put up the lights, grow stuff, teach us, inspire us, feed us, fix stuff, show us how to be better, and are always there for us.
Each image was printed inventively and creatively, with media including light-as-a-feather chiffon gauze, jigsaws puzzles, marble coasters, tea towels, laser-cut 3D crystal, wrapping paper, wood prints, acrylic, aluminium, reflective vinyl, bar mat, light box, and a vintage car bonnet!
The resulting gallery exhibition was jaw droppingly awesome, with over 100 attendees on the opening night. We lost track of the number of times we heard "I didn't know you could do that!" That evening the images were also displayed larger than life on the exterior wall of the Emerald Art Gallery, and the resulting display was then filmed in turn by drone, courtesy of one of our junior members, Kynan Shields.
The project was a tremendous success, introducing our members and guests to new and innovative ways in which to print their excellent photography. Our exhibitors were blown away with how incredible their work looked, printed large and on display in such a terrific space.
