Collaboration: interrogating Melbourne’s changing urban landscape. Photographs by Gary Sauer-Thompson…
‘Appreciation To Death is the first personal photographic exhibition of Harris Choy, a Chinese photographic artist specialized in palladium/platinum and palladium prints.
The exhibition presents to us how people in the past generations show appreciation to their ancestor’s achievements, remembrance days and love stories through stunning and meaningful sculptures. The artist hopes the photographs in the exhibition will remind us that we should show appreciation to those who have died.’
Most of the photographs were made at the Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno Italy. This famous outdoor museum was designed in the 19th century by one of the most appreciated architect, Carlo Barabino, featuring hundreds of stunning and meaningful sculptures.
The prints presented in this exhibition are platinum/palladium prints, hand crafted by Harris Choy from digital negatives.
