STREET PHOTOGRAPHY NOWLa street photography connaît aujourd’hui un renouveau sans précédent.
A travers le portrait de 46 photographes actuels, les auteurs de ce livre nous donnent à voir le meilleur de la création contemporaine dans un domaine qui n’a cessé depuis Gary Winogrand, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson et Robert Frank — quatre des plus grands noms de la photographie de rue — de fasciner photographes, écrivains et un public amateurs d’« instants décisifs ». Toute la magie, la poésie, la beauté mais aussi le comique et le tragique de nos vies urbaines sont révélés par ces photographes capables en une fraction de seconde de rendre compte avec une rare éloquence de la complexité de la...
Season 14Each December Stills Gallery features a show of selected Stills artists. The theme for Season 2014 is continuity and divergence. There are twelve artists with a highly diverse range of practices that reflect both the history (of the gallery and of photography itself) and the diversity with which photography has developed in unprecedented ways over the last twenty years.
Steven Lojewski’s series Populace was one of the first exhibitions at Stills when it began in 1991. These black and white images in the tradition of documentary street photography look as fresh as the day they were first seen. They are the same silver gelatin prints printed by the artist at that time. In the vein of found photographs, Ian Dodd, a generation before Lojewski, shows new unseen work (Presence) in vibrant and romantic colour after yea...

Water Hole by Narelle Autio
Narelle Autio’s new series, Water hole, celebrates the otherworldly beauty of the dark waters she encountered whilst travelling through parts of Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia. Driving through these dry and remote areas of Australia, she found herself pulled towards the isolated bodies of water that dot the landscape. These waterholes dictated the path of her travels, crossing the parched earth of the day to arrive at waters edge by afternoon.
Unlike earlier bodies of work, which celebrated the restorative powers of the coast, these new works explore these dark inland waters that seem more ancient and full of complexity, despite their stillness. The surfaces give nothing away and the depths offer only corridors of light for swimmers.

Season10 - Stills Gallery, SydneyIn SEASON10 we are featuring a mix of unseen images and work selected from previous series by each artist, with an emphasis on summer and celebration.
Narelle Autio’s Seaweed Stacks is an intriguing image of sculptural seaweed forms on the beach near her home. The coast and water has been an ongoing inspiration for Autio, as is evident in her 2006 series celebrating bodies spontaneously at play beneath the surface of the water. Trent Parke is represented with gems from a current work in progress, The Black Rose, which is about coming to terms with the interconnectedness of past, present and future. Also showing will be favourites from The Christmas Tree Bucket series.
In her new images In Lieu, Like A Bird Now and The Ravellor, Pat Brassington continues her fascination with the transformed human body as a sit...
The Summer of Us - Narelle AutioNarelle Autio’s vibrant and award-winning images of Australian coastal life have won her impressive national and international acclaim. Since they were first exhibited at Stills Gallery in 2000, her vivid images have also captured the hearts and imaginations of viewers. One beauty of Autio’s work is its ability to speak to so many people about their own experience of being coastal dwellers. Another is the play of colour and light in the photographs, giving them a magic and painterly quality that transcends the usual depictions of the beach. Autio’s images give back to the coastline the complexity, drama and beauty that are eroded by postcards and clichés....
Season 08 Exposition collective Stills gallery The end of the year is upon us. To celebrate we are showing a selection of six Stills artists. Trent Parke’s dark and humorous series The Christmas Tree Bucket is highly appropriate for this seasonal show. "I started to think how strange families, suburbia, life... and in particular Christmas, really was" says Parke of his decision to focus on the joys and pitfalls of family life. The series can be seen in full at the Australian Centre for Photography in Paddington and has just been shown (in part) with great interest at Paris Photo, France.
Narelle Autio’s underwater images continue to fascinate viewers. Shown here is a selection of works from different series. The body in watery space is celebrated in these glorious balletic photographs that gain in impact in proximity to each other. Summer is ...
