Work from Newcastle based creative agency Headjam has been accepted into the State Library of Victoria’s collection.
This City Speaks to Me is a documentation of Australian bohemia through the lens of Luke Kellett, principal of Headjam Creative. The work was selected by curator Claire Williamson.
The work is part of a new exhibition at the State Library of Victoria titled ‘Bohemian Melbourne’ which opened on Thursday 11 December. The exhibition explores Melbourne’s enduring counter-cultures and celebrates a who’s who of creative free spirits.
Kellett attended the exhibition opening last week. He said: “To have Headjam’s work included amongst artists’ work that dates back to 1806 is a privilege. Melbourne’s bohemian culture is fascinating. This City Speaks To Me includes a series of portraiture and documentary photographs including negatives and rare Polaroid film that revolves around Melbourne’s warehouse-cum-studio and grassroots arts spaces.”
‘Bohemian Melbourne’ is open to the public from December 12 and runs until February 22 2015 at the Keith Murdoch Gallery, State Library of Victoria.
