on 14/04/2019

An international photo exhibition in Sydney explores what ‘home’ means to different people, as part of the Reportage Photography Festival.

One of the exhibit’s organisers and photographers, David Maurice Smith says the theme was chosen because of its varied meanings.

“Home means something to everyone,” he says.

“Whether you have one, or whether you don’t. Whether it’s a feeling, an actual place or people around you, it can mean a lot of things, so it was a nice, broad opportunity for us.”

The exhibition contains photographs taken both in Australia and abroad.

Photographer Andrew Quilty’s work features in the show. One of his photographs (which features in the video above) was taken in the aftermath of last year’s Hurricane Sandy in the United States.

“I went back to the area to do another assignment and while I was there I wanted to go back and see how the community was rebuilding,” he says.

“So I walked back along this long stretch of beach and I was just photographing the houses I came upon. And this one, it was right at the end of the day, there was hardly any light at all and I just thought it looked kind of foreboding and it had that apocalyptic feel.”

Artist Lee Grant’s work in the exhibit focuses around the growing multicultural diversity in Canberra.

“Growing up in the ’80s there, particularly — it was really white.”

“I was sort of an anomaly, as was my mother — she’s Korean. So we were foreigners in some ways. But suddenly going back there with my children was really kind of a stark difference to the way it was [when I was] growing up, and I was interested in exploring that a bit more.”
