Photos from 'round the place. Taken by Chris Round.

Been a little quiet recently and I’m going to take a break from shooting for a while - I’m moving house and will be offline soon for a fair while for a start, and have plenty of other things going on. So I’ll be having a break from posting shots on Facebook, Tumblr and other social channels for a while until I start getting in to some new projects over the coming months. Cheers!

Been offline for a while, but next week I have a show opening at The Colour Factory in Melbourne. It’s called “In Two Places” and is a selection of images from over the past few years that reflect the likely influence my UK upbringing has had on my photographic practice here. Much of my work during this period has been defined by overcast skies and muted tones - lighting conditions similar to that of my younger days back in England. These are a few of the images featured. It opens Thurs 2nd Oct 6-8pm 409-429 Gore Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne. Any Melbournians out there please pop along. Cheers.

Heading down to Melbourne for the opening of ‘Inversion’ on Tuesday. Here’s a few more images from the show at Edmund Pearce Gallery

'Inversion' was a finalist at Exposure 2014 which was cool. If anyone is in Melbourne during the week of 22nd July feel free to pop in and see the show at Edmund Pearce. Prints are 80x60cm and mounted on Dibond aluminium composite and will be displayed on the matt black walls of the ‘black gallery’

“Inversion marks a departure from my normal landscape based work and in to experimental still life. This series is an investigation into form and visual illusion using functional, mass-produced objects. By removing context – using a reflective surface that’s not immediately apparent and at times changing colours – I’m interrogating the duality of the real and the imagined, the prosaic and the beautiful. I’m also exploring the physicality of depth and space, re-evaluating both utilitarian aesthetic and function simultaneously.”
In 2 weeks I’m having an exhibition at Edmund Pearce Gallery, showing some experimental work that I’ve been developing, on and off, for the past 10 months or so. It’s a big departure from my normal work. Called ‘Inversion’ it opens Tuesday 22nd July 6-8pm and is part of the Nite Art week in Melbourne. Attached is the first image. I’ll post the statement and more images in the next few days.
