Seagulls In The City
51 William Street, Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010, Australia
30th April 2018 to 14th May 2018
Photography Exhibition by Andre Braun - Associated Exhibition as part of the Head On Photo Festival. ARO Gallery - Darlinghurst. Looking over Sydney from a bird’s perspective, a vision of the city harbour like you have never seen before. Admired or unwelcome like no other birds, seagulls are part of this city. A lot of articles have recently highlighted the aggressive nature of these birds, the main culprit being humans feeding them. Is it really the gulls fault to be located near populated areas with no other place to go than near people? The complexity comes as they are protected in Sydney, not always welcome, but not deterred by people. The selected photographs are looking at the beauty of these unique creatures and the similar expression between them and people. The images focus on the emotional expression produced by those birds, in their day to day life around Sydney Harbour. A display of large scale photography, with intriguing postures and expression captured over several years, creating a dialogue of two worlds in the middle of the city. After all, seagulls are the first resident of Sydney!
