Next Generation: Solomon Islands After RAMSI by Sean Davey
An exhibition by Sean Davey depicting daily life in Honiara at the end of RAMSI. After 14 years of the Australian led Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI), this Pacific Island nation now looks towards it's future as a fully-fledged, self-determined country. Sean Davey was commissioned by the Department of Foreign Affairs to photograph in Honiara in June/July 2017 to mark the drawdown of RAMSI and to produce a set of documentary photographs that reveal the state of the country at this pivotal moment in its history.

Provenance by Geoffery Dunn
An exhibition by Canberra-based mid-career photographer Geoffrey Dunn showcasing black and white portraits of Canberra photographers and artists. Through a combination of medium format film photography and modern digital techniques, Geoffery Dunn has created a set of photographs that are both documentary and an exploration of the creative mind through portraiture.
