Sultans of Speed
SULTANS OF SPEED is a portrait series by Willem-Dirk du Toit, his first solo exploration documenting the automotive subculture of the land speed record and the characters who take on the harsh salt plain of Lake Gairdner. They battle 48-degree heat, a costly obsession, and each other to exceed speeds of 400km/h in pursuit of the global land speed record.
Show runs through till the 24th of October

CONTROL – Daniel Bushaway
Control is an ongoing series observing the infrastructure used to extract, conserve, and ultimately control water. These vast landscapes manipulated to facilitate mass consumption – so we have water at the turn of a tap.
The series was shot on a 4×5 large-format camera during summer 2009–12 in the Andalucían Basin in regional Spain and regional Tasmania, Australia. Daniel works primarily in large-format film, shooting in natural light. His predominant concern is nature altered by industry, which he explores in highly complex, controlled and textural compositions.
Opening Night: 23rd May 6:30-8:30
51–57 Cubitt Street, Cremorne VIC 3121
24 May – 10 June 2013

The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels

At First Glance
I’ve threatened to do this for quite some time and finally got forced off my ass to do something about it. So for the next three months I have a selection of both photographic and illustrative works up in the Corporate Culture showroom, 680 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. It’s a beautiful space that has been exceptionally renovated and presented. My works are scattered over all four floors, so if you’re out that side of town please drop by and take a look… Thanks – Chris

Behind the Scenes
Lisa Tomasetti presents a series of images of the Australian Ballet, having been granted exclusive access to photograph the Ballet over several years on their international tours to Tokyo, New York, and Paris. Taken out of their usual context the Ballerina’s dance, pirouette and leap through the gritty city streets, as Tomasetti creates riveting images that fuse high gloss performance with coarse urban reality.
These works are available through James Makin Gallery
