‘The Look, at Geelong Gallery features sixty-eight photographic portraits of Australians from all walks of life – a range of ages, genders, occupations, races and levels of fame – captured by some of our country’s most celebrated photographers. The photographs stretch over five decades, back to an early 1970s portrait by Ivan Gaal of actor (and Play School presenter) George Spartels.

The photographers in the exhibition include Adam Knott, Julian Kingma, Michael Riley, Petrina Hicks, Tracey Moffatt, David Rosetzky, Ingvar Kenne and Andrew Maccoll. They’ve captured remarkable images of Australians including Nicole Kidman, Heath Ledger, Carla Zampatti, Bryan Brown, Lee Lin Chin, Megan Gale, Cate Blanchett, Nick Cave, Rachel Griffiths, Ian Thorpe and Layne Beachley.
