We all live in Adelaide, but sometimes we can forget to appreciate the finer details of our city. We walk past the same streets, shops, coffee joints and hidden laneways every day without taking a second look. Capturing the most beautiful parts of Adelaide you tend to forget, is photographer Samantha Herbut. She’s a tourist, but very much an Adelaide resident.
How can you be both? By exploring, by appreciating, by trying something new. Samantha’s photography tells the story of a city you may not recognise.
Starting photography at Uni, Samantha took to the art quickly, and in particular film cameras. Anything you see on her Instagram that isn’t shot for a job is most likely done on film.
Living overseas, she started to use her photography to explore cities, which helped her to discover all of her favourite places. Coming back to Adelaide and seeing how much our city truly has to offer, she’s realised photography is what she wants to do.
“I like architecture and travel”, she said when I asked her favourite thing to shoot. Despite the growing market for ‘social photographers’ in Adelaide, she says she would much prefer to photograph people when they’re not expecting it, when they’re just living in the moment.
Take a look through her online portfolio/Instagram and you’ll see corners and angles of the city you’ll just slightly recognize, and perspectives of people, animals and nature that completely magnify their beauty.
Samantha is holding an exhibition at the Central Market Kitchen this Wednesday night, where she’ll be showing us ‘her Adelaide’; the places she loves to go, her favourite coffee, her favourite sandwich, her favourite art space… Her work is sure to make you want to go out and really explore Adelaide this weekend.
Samantha’s Exhibition PLACE [My Adelaide] is this Wednesday December 9 from 6pm in the Central Market Kitchen, Level 1 44-60 Gouger St Adelaide.
