This Friday at the lucrative spot of Clubhouse Lane, off Hindley Street a special photography exhibition will host the spectacular works from Adelaide photographers, Andre Castellucci and Ben McPherson. The pair have dubbed this the 'comrades' exhibition as there will be both photos from Ben's time in Qingdao, China and Andre's time in central LA. We spoke to the pair ahead of the event and Andre told us how...
"I've been into photography from skateboarding since age 22 (...I'm 29 now) while Ben was into BMX photography"
Andre's LA photos were shot while on assignment for a hotel client in October/Nov last year. Conversely Ben's images stem from following the Royal Adelaide Club's (a rebranded Croquet Club) venture to the Qingdao International Beer Festival. The expertise of these two photographers is brilliant, and their commercial photography skills do not impede or influence the creative works that will be on display tommorow.
When asked what he looks for in a photograph, Andre replied that he is always looking for "the Decisive Moment”. Ben also observed that in regard to the exhibition...
"It's an opportunity to show what you do for a living and have to stand by it, if it sucks it sucks and if it's good it's good."
Modesty aside, we can assure you that if you head along to 'Comrades' on Friday evening you will be not be dissapointed. The depth to each piece from both photographers makes this the perfect exhibition to sink your teeth into, regardless of your familiarity with the art. There will also be prints and T shirts for sale, DJ's and apparently a bit of a party.
