Site Unseen
20.07.22

What happens when architectural photographers consider their medium as subject rather than object? Site Unseen, presented by our friends Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) as part of Open House Melbourne (30-31 July), sees sixteen photographers explore emotional experiences of place and the diversity that exists in architectural and built form photography – in medium, typology and the photographic community itself. ⁠

Curated by participating photographer Tom Ross, Site Unseen includes works by Rory Gardiner, Ying Ang, Pier Carthew, Coco and Maximilian, John Gollings, Gavin Green, Morgan Hickinbotham, Brooke Holm, Rohan Hutchinson, Annika Kafcaloudis, Mengzhu Jiang, Shannon McGrath, Veeral Patel, Erieta Attali and Ben Hosking, with editioned works available for purchase.⁠

Pop-up stores by two of Melbourne’s leading photography and architecture bookstores, Perimeter Books and Bookshop by Uro, accompany the display of architectural works, providing further insights into the emotionally-charged nature of capturing place.

“In a time when architecture representation is being narrowed to imagery of persuasion, perhaps this work can serve as a reminder of the sincere exchange between people and the built environment,” (Centre for Contemporary Photography).
