In Transit by Hamish Ta-mé            View the exhibition online.
We move through our lives and the landscape with a restless energy, pushing, pulling, hoping, fearing. Connecting. At times we come together in shared spaces, and in community. Our train journeys are a time where a large disparate group from an incredibly diverse range of backgrounds and intentions come together in parallel for a few hours to then disperse again. Railways have played a vital role in creating communities with little more initial connection than a common transport hub. From these utilitarian beginnings grows a community of families, friends, colleagues and commerce. These portraits are part of a larger body of work shot whilst commuting, they come from a place of openness and a genuine interest in these unique lives and how the sitters came to be in this time at this place. On display in the Parcels  & Main Gallery

10am – 3pm 22-23 Sept & 29-30 Sept & 6-7 October
Waste to Art by Gunning Public School
