12 August - 20 November

Museum of Brisbane, Ground Floor, 157 Ann St,Brisbane,

WHEN : 12 August – 20 November
WHERE : Museum of Brisbane, Ground Floor, 157 Ann St,Brisbane,

This exhibition surveys the collaborative practice of social documentary photographers Angela Blakely and David Lloyd, whose work examines conflict and personal crisis, both abroad and closer to home.

Encompassing close to two decades of works, the exhibition features powerful explorations of human rights and social issues. The works include a project that gives voice to marginalised Indigenous youth in Mt Isa and a continuation …of an earlier commission by the History Section of the Australian Army that traces Australia’s involvement after the crisis in Rwanda. Also on display are works commissioned by the World Health Organisation in the former USSR, alongside other international and Australian stories.

“Everyone has a story to tell” and you, the listener, are given an enormous privilege when that story is shared. In return, by listening you show respect and validation to the one telling their story. Stories connect us and allow us to invest in the lives of others. They break down the boundaries between ‘them’ and ‘us’. Blakely & Lloyd, 2011
