Reviewing was included in the Tasmanian International Arts Festival, Friday 20 – Monday 29 March
Different times and cultural settings, combined with changing technologies have influenced the way artists select, conceptualise and create their photographic work. Reviewing foregrounds the sphere of photography as both documentation and art. It provides the viewer with varying points of entry through both early photographic imagery and contemporary photographic practice and perspectives. Selected Tasmanian photographers were invited to create photographic works inspired by the Robinson Photographic Collection. The Robinson Photographic Collection consists of thousands of negatives made by a NW Tasmanian family business from the late 1920s to the mid-1970s. The Collection is owned by the Devonport City Council and managed by the Devonport Regional Gallery.
