Invitation to Photography08 Show @ Brunswick Street Gallery

After much anticipation, anxiety, and late nights preparing and re-post-producing, it is finally upon me…the opening night of my first exhibition of works in a smaller group show, at Brunswick Street Gallery, this Friday 9th May.

This is an official invitation to the opening of Photography08, to all bubblers and bubblettes who have come across my work and decided to hit the ‘add Mark Hayward to your watchlist’ button…Cheers!

Would be awesome to meet some of you guys in the flesh over a wine (or three…I’m gonna need it!)

Mark Hayward / TRANSITIONS

Transition; the process of change from one form, state, style or place, to another

I am interested in looking at, taking and creating photographic images that are considered in design, as well as a way to illustrate ideas.

The images in this series of work explore various notions of Transition.

Literally, they are still-frame records of movement; moments in time in the travel and transit, of people, places, objects, seasons and scenes, from one place to another. Metaphorically, they serve as vehicle’s to tell various stories of human experience; the movement from childhood to adolescence, the celebration of summer and of youth, the isolation and reflection of the lone traveler, the transition and change from ‘here’ to ‘there’ in culture, lifestyles and environment I see in the post-modern world, and in particular, how we interact with and become part of the ever changing visual landscape, as we move through it.

Mark Hayward studied graphic design, majoring in illustration in his final year at Monash University in 1997, and has worked as a graphic designer since 1998. From 2000 to 2007 he worked as a designer at the Federal banknote production facility at Note Printing Australia, producing banknote and passport designs for national and international clients, most notably having recently designed and produced the upcoming new Australian Passport. His present interest in purely photographic work, developed from his use of photo-based imagery in his graphic design, fuelled and inspired by work and personal travels throughout Europe, Asia and Australia over the last five years.

To date Mark has participated in a number of group open-entry shows and competitions –
2004 – Centre for Contemporary Photography Nikon Summer Salon (Award for Best Digital Photo-Media -‘Vanishing Point’ 1-4, 2004, quadtych, Digital Print)
2006 – Linden Gallery Postcard Show (‘The Disappearing’, 2006 and ‘Naxos Structure’, 2005)
2007 – Linden Gallery Postcard Show (Postcard Finalist Winner – ‘Geneva Lake Divers’, 2006, Inkjet Print)
2008 – ‘In the Moment’ Magazine Competition (Overall Visual Art Winner, ‘Geneva Lake Divers’) Published, Feb, 2008
