NOT THE ARCHIBALD – JOHN KELLY
11-30 January 2021
Photographer John Kelly presents a stunning array of photographic portraiture that is painterly and impressionistic. Focussing on the human face and bodies in landscapes, John explores human forms across a variety of settings ranging from the intimate to the panoramic, many recognisably Geelong. Moving away from what he describes as “photographic purity”, John’s images reflect his interest in those introspective moments when subjects are seemingly oblivious to the camera. Richly textured and beautifully lit, these portraits ask us to stop and contemplate.
