Nadine Christensen explores the unextraordinary
Nadine Christensen’s survey exhibition at Buxton Contemporary spans more than two decades of her practice, bringing together 80 works that explore the quotidian with substantial depth and humour.
Congratulations to James Bugg who has taken out the $50,000 first prize in the 2018 Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize.
Bugg’s photo, Zach, was selected from a field of 30 works by 24 finalists from across Australia.
Established in 2007, the aim of the annual prize is to encourage excellence in all forms of still photography. The Moran Foundation set the theme and entrants were asked to somehow represent Australian contemporary life. Most of the works are portraits, with only a few exceptions.
The first prize was judged by Cheryl Newman, Jon Jones and Raphaela Rosella.
Bugg’s winning work captures a man in a suburban garden which is full to bursting with either trash or treasure, depending on your point of view.
Louise Whelan, Nicki Jackson and Peter Edward awarded the three prizes for high school students to: Claire Herbert, Noah Dawson and Luca Johns.
Works by all of the finalists are on show at Juniper Hall in Sydney until 27 May.
