Last Thursday night I had the pleasure of attending the opening of the Perth Centre for Photography's Iris Awards. The exhibition is an annual competition, hosting extraordinary talent from both local and international photographers. This year the Iris Award was presented to Flavia Schuster for her image And the Dragon Lost his Fire, with two Judges Commendations awarded to Warwick Baker and Aaron Bradbook.

PCP hosted an excellent opening night. Upon entering the gallery I was overwhelmed by the vibrancy and atmosphere, and seemingly never-ending free wine. Every single image demanded personal attention, so I grabbed a glass of white and weaved myself through the throng of people to better inspect the displays. I was instantly struck by the diversity between the images: the varying styles, techniques and subjects. And what most impressed me was the imagination and originality of the work.

It was an eclectic mix of images from photographers at various stages of their careers: some well established, others up-and-coming talent still at university. The mesh of vibrantly coloured images with brooding black and whites, shots that make you think and those that seem to tell a thousand stories, create a visual banquet that's not to be missed.

The Iris Award exhibition runs from 4th 28th August at Perth Centre for Photography. Call 9227 6620 or e-mail
