Rox de Luca's exhibition of 19 men portrayed in 'All Meat No Veg' were all of men known to her. What did the portraits reveal about the sitters?
Polish born Krystyna Petryk has long been fascinated with portraiture and representations of the nude in photography. Her own investigations began in Warsaw by photographing her pregnant friends and continued after her arrival in Western Australia in 1982. Once here she broadened her explorations to include both male and female subjects before shifting to photograph and research representations of men exclusively.
Series of works by Tyrone Townsend, Victoria Straub, Polixeni Papapetrou, Phil George and Simon Cardwell. Large format and mainly colour images.
