The ‘fotostrada’ photojournalist collective – of which I am one member of a total of eleven – is showing a group exhibition entitled “Portraits on a Bus” as part of the “2012 Head On Photo Festival” .
The exhibition runs at the Global Gallery, Paddington, Sydney from Tuesday, 29th May to Sunday 3rd June with the grand opening eve on Wednesday 30th May from 6pm. All are welcome to attend.
Here’s the exhibit description from the Head On Festival program and web site …
“The bus is ubiquitous. Every country on the planet has some form of bus transportation.
From cramped roof top rides on dishevelled buses in India … to tiny ‘bemos’ in Indonesia, mundane mass transport in Hong Kong, luxury express buses in Australia … even a work bus in Antarctica – the ‘fotostrada’ collective team has captured all in images which convey the very essence of the travelling bus passenger and the machines that carry them.”
Several of my images made during visits to India, Hong Kong and Indonesia are featured in the exhibition alongside other great work by colleagues Dean Lewins, Tracey Nearmy, Graham Crouch, Sam Mooy, Renee Nowytarger, Mark ‘Crusty’ Baker and Melanie Russell.
I’ve put together my own personal extended version of “Portraits on a Bus” from all my images that made the short list for the exhibition collection … and this essay has been added to my personal web site at https://www.briancasseyphotographer.com/images.php?imagefolder=bus.
Posted below is a small selection of my “Portraits on a Bus” images.
Look forward to seeing you at the exhibition …
