Fotoeins Friday: “Warrang” by Brook Andrew (Sydney MCA)

This post is the fifth and last of five Fotoeins Fridays in June, all from Australia’s most populous city, Sydney.

As a permanent commission of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, Brook Andrew’s 2012 work “Warrang” is prominent near the museum’s entrance. Portraits by resident and visitor under the arrow might seem obvious or simple, but the artist is asking questions about the idea of shared (or dominated) history for both indigenous and colonizing populations at the arrow’s location.

EDIT: Brook Andrew is the first Australian indigenous artist to be appointed director of the upcoming Biennale Sydney in 2020 (ABC Arts).

I made the photo above on 5 May 2013 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and settings: 1/320-sec, f/8, ISO400, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). I acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional custodians of the land called Australia, and the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation as traditional custodians of the place called Sydney.

Happy Australia Day

To my friends ‘down under’ – happy Australia Day on this January 26!

I made the above photo just outside “Peter Doyle at the Quay‎” (Overseas Passenger Terminal, Circular Quay) in Sydney, Australia on 26 September 2010, with the Canon EOS450D camera, EF 70-300mm IS lens, and the following settings: 1/250s, f/8, ISO200, 70mm.

“Open jaw”

With this slightly modified take on the Opera House in late-afternoon light (i.e., 2 hours before sunset), I’m reminded about how much I’ve enjoyed my time in Sydney, which is about 6 to 7 weeks in total over 4 separate trips since 2007. Sydney is on my hit parade once again, this time for 2012.

For most, it’s a long way to Australia, but a 13-hour trip from here in Chile across the south Pacific isn’t really all that long, since any significant trip outside of South America is going to take at least 24 to 30 hours door-to-door. From a travel perspective, an “open jaw” ticket is a specific and flexible type of air ticket, about which you can read here.

I made the photo above on 26 September 2010 with the Canon EOS450D camera, EF 70-300mm IS lens, and the following settings: 1/1000s, f/8, ISO200, 70mm. This post is published originally on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).
