Spain on film: Photo exhibition

An intimate exploration of the streets of Spain
The Light Gallery presents Spain on Film, a medium-format street photography series by Lucy Spartalis.

Melbourne-based Lucy Spartalis took a two-week road trip across Spain, using a Yashica Mat 124G and a mix of Kodak Tri-X and Ilford HP5 black and white films, to find a new approach to her photography. As her first project away from digital media in years, Spartalis used this trip as an opportunity to reacquaint herself with more traditional approaches and techniques.

She moves away from the use of vivid, vibrant colours, choosing instead to focus on textures, shapes, and light, to capture her surroundings. She combined this with a more careful consideration of each frame before shooting. The result is a subtle, unobtrusive view of Spanish streets and cities, through the Twin Lens Reflex camera.

."I enjoyed seeing the confusion on the face of younger people as they passed through the frame, unable to make sense of what I was doing," Spartalis says, "and the smiles of recognition from those who knew the camera from long ago."

This exhibition will be available from Wednesday, 4 March, until Friday, 8 April, and is open to the public. Director of the Centre for Creative Photography Gavin Blake will be opening the exhibition on 4 March, at 6pm.
