I’m Here – Selfscapes of Solitude is a showcase of Kingsville photographer and regular Westsider contributor David Porteus’s finest work.
Through a combination of photographic and digital collages, David’s work takes its solitary subjects through the vast and whimsical landscapes of the Australian road trip and explores the experiences of solitude.
The Trocadero Artspace in Footscray will host this haunting photographic exhibition from March the 18th, and visitors can expect to view visual ‘songs’ or poems celebrating solitude.
I was inspired by stories of others travelling in solitude, something which I have always yearned to do. The people in the works had all known solitude, so I drew on their experiences in the shoots, to create giant postcards or self-scapes.
Opening: Saturday 21st March Trocadero Gallery, Footscray 4-6 pm
Exhibition dates: 18th March to 2nd April, Wed to Sat 12-5pm
