On Parramatta Road - last weekend


On Parramatta Road is open Saturday and Sunday.
11am-5pm until May 29.


Gallery drinks all weekend at Articulate project space, 497 Parramatta Rd, Leichhardt.

The solo exhibition by photographer Lyndal Irons preserves Australia’s first highway, a stretch perpetually threatened by change. It is a field study of life on a road considered dead, across car yards, brothels, bed shops and around 20 suburbs of greater Sydney. Part documentary photography and part road trip, On Parramatta Road restores a sense of journey to a road better known for daily transit.

Supported by the 2015 Pool Grant and The POOL COLLECTIVE. Part of the 2016 Head On Photo Festival. Sponsored by SUNSTUDIOS.
