#SOME_PICTURES, is an exhibition by the award winning portrait, advertising and documentary photographer Adrian Cook. The exhibition, which opens tonight, Thursday June 10th, showcases his series of hand-printed silver gelatin prints and wet plate collodion images.
The exhibition runs from 10th to 26th June, at Disorder Gallery – Door 108, corner of Stanley and Bourke St., Darlinghurst, Sydney.
Come to opening night tonight Thursday 10th for Cocktails and Canapés from 6pm to 8pm.
Cook has been exhibited worldwide and has picked up awards at Cannes and D&AD amongst others. In Australia, he has been a finalist in Head On, Art & About, The Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize and the National Portrait Prize. Despite his incredible work for ad-land in digital photography, he desired a deeper exploration into the photography craft, having been a film photographer prior.
Says Cook: “In early 2015, I was becoming uninspired by the predictability and monotony of digital photography, so I began taking photographs using the wet plate collodion process, in an effort to recreate the aesthetic qualities and characteristics lost with the demise of film. In contrast to the immediate & pervasive, I now work on personal projects using wet plate techniques, both in the studio and ‘on the road’ from his mobile darkroom. It’s beautiful and unique.”
