Solomon Islands (2017)

The Photography Room, ACT, 3 February - 12 March 2017.

At The Photography Room in Kingston (Canberra) is the exhibition by Sean Davey – Solomon Islands (2016). If you like beautiful photography – beautifully printed photography – and a beautifully presented exhibition, then this is one for you to see and enjoy.
Sean Davey’s exhibition, Solomon Islands (2016), is based on being in the Solomon Islands on a job, when he also took the opportunity to put together this portfolio of work.

This sort of social documentary work is a ‘must see’. What really shines in this exhibition is the quality of the work – the photographer has one of those magical eyes for the essence of what makes for a wonderful image – and then even better – he knows how to make a wonderful print (rare these days). Seeing such quality photography is always a great pleasure.

Put all of that together and you have before you what makes photography the great medium of expression it is.
