A posthumous exhibition of Stuart Campbell's works will be on display at the Art Gallery of Ballarat from 30 August to 12 October.

Born in Ballarat in 1951, Stuart was an actor who studied at NIDA and had some success before turning his focus to photography.

His portraits feature actors, directors and writers of the cinema renaissance of the 1980s known as the Australian New Wave.

The exhibition features his black and white portraits of actors, directors and writers including Mel Gibson, Colin Farrell and Judy Davis, and filmmakers Gillian Armstrong and Peter Weir.

He stayed faithful to the sensuous darks and lights of black and white film, valuing the richness and honesty of the medium.
