Photographer John Gollings shines in The History of the Built World at Whitehorse Artspace

10 Apr 2019

An exhibition of the work of John Gollings, Australia’s pre-eminent photographer of the built environment, begins tomorrow at Whitehorse Artspace.

Whitehorse Councillor Raylene Carr said the free exhibition, The History of the Built World,   showcases Gollings’ amazing ability to capture the way architecture interacts with its surroundings.

“Gollings is a renowned international photographer and this exhibition presents his talent through his photos of all sorts of architectural creations,” Cr Carr said.

“From Australian suburbia to Indian temples, from an aerial view of Surfers Paradise to the stunning Lotus Building in China, there is so much to ponder here about the way humans inhabit the world.”

For the past 50 years he has been synthesising his joint interests in photography and architecture to explore the cultural construction of social spaces.

The History of the Built World is the first major survey of Gollings’ photographic practice and is a Monash Gallery of Art Travelling Exhibition.

The exhibition runs from 11 April – 15 June at Whitehorse Artspace, Box Hill Town Hall, 1022 Whitehorse Road, Box Hill. Open Tuesday - Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday 12 noon- 4pm.

Don’t miss a floor talk this month by John Gollings on Saturday 25 May at 2pm at Artspace.
