David Stephenson human landscapes

David Stephenson subverts traditional approaches to landscape photography and alters the way we look at the world and consider our place within it. Confronting philosophical concepts like the infinite and the sublime with a minimalist yet poetic sensibility, he conveys the transcendental force of the landscape.

Presents the work of one of the most important Australian photographers of his generation

Drawn from the Gallery’s collection, this exhibition includes a number of Stephenson’s early works from the 1980s, including majestic pinhole photographs of the sea and sky and expansive panoramas that project a romantic sensibility, as well as his stark yet poignant works shot in the Antarctic in the 1990s.
