THE Horsham Regional Art Gallery latest exhibition Exposed:Perceptions in Photography will open on Saturday.

Horsham Regional Art Gallery director Adam Harding said 11 Wimmera students engaged in the education program to create a body of work that would be featured.

He said the students’ work reflected the natural world while others explored the intersection of technology in their lives. 

“It is a fantastic opportunity for students to look deeper into their art practice,” he said. Mr Harding said students explored a subject of their choice that depicted exposure.

First time program photographer Lilly Martin said she was interested to learn how the camera worked and how photographs were formed.

Lilly said her work was inspired by the saying ‘those who have suffered understand suffering and hereby extend their hand’. 

She said her images spoke of sorrow and exhaustion while reminding people that despite it all – ‘we endure’.
