Trent Parke in ‘Public Image, Private Lives: Family, Friends and Self’ at the Art Gallery of South Australia

Public Image, Private Lives: Family, Friends and Self is now open at the Art Gallery of South Australia!

Public Image, Private Lives, open until July 3, delves beneath the surface of familiar (and some unfamiliar) images in Australian and international photography, to highlight close connections between the photographer and subject, whether they be friends, family members or the photographers themselves.
