GRAIN OF INDIA - Dallas Graham

Wednesday 12th November - Saturday 20th December 2014

Grain of India is Dallas Graham's retrospective exhibition of images originally shot in India in 1983. Recorded on film, the initial intent was to work in the darkroom and multiple print, with the addition of typically Australian scenes. However as time wore on, Dallas' extensive career in photomanipulations, as a professional retoucher, and the digital realm has allowed greater manipulation, albeit working only with the originals but accentuating the fundamental construct of film. Grain, the elegance of analogue photography, is a metaphor representing the heart of India. The silver halide clumps (grain) that make up an image suggest a kind of raw beauty and one that is analogous to these scenes from the artist's 'Holy Grail' first inundation with India.
