Black and white have never been less simple
Everything may not be black and white and yet, sometimes beauty can be found in those seemingly dull hues. From the 17th of August to the 15th of September, Polish photographer Ireneusz Luty and his dark unexpected work will be on exhibition at the Queensland Centre for Photography. Happily, the exhibition is also free.

Mundane activities, objects and the hum-drum of city life have been captured in a way that challenges our idea of the everyday. The images invite you to appreciate these moments from a perspective that may not be your norm. The mundane can be beautiful if you look at it from the right angle (or the left angle, whatever works).

If you live or work in the city, do you ever see beauty in your everyday travels? If you do not, perhaps you should take a closer look and let Luty inspire you to find intrigue in the seemingly monotonous. He explores Sydney through a camera lens and shares his photographic adventures with us in Queensland. Personally, I have not been to Sydney but for those who have, you may see familiar sights from a different perspective.



Opening night is on the 17th of August from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. Check out the website for more information and for more exhibitions by the Queensland Centre of Photography. If Luty has piqued your interest or delighted your brain, venture over to his website to see past works and Luty tid bits. Noir is Luty's lover, and noir loves him back.



Luty is a freelance photography living in Sydney. His pieces are for the most part urban landscapes. Within this urban setting he attempts to discover the lesser known exquisiteness of everyday life on Earth. His photos are created by long exposure infrared photography. The pieces are surreal and some have the potential to be a little bit eerie. That undertone I experience is perhaps inspired by the noir colouring.

Our lives may not stop. We rush through the city and sometimes through our lives. However, let us stop for a moment and explore the camera flash moments.
