Robyn Stacey: Cloud Land
VC Room, Michael Rayner and Jennifer Taylor.
From the exhibition Robyn Stacey: Cloud Land. Museum of Brisbane (2015)

“Robyn Stacey is one of Australia’s preeminent contemporary photographers. Her new body of work for Museum of Brisbane reveals some of our city’s most familiar places, buildings and landmarks in a completely new way.

Stacey uses one of the oldest photographic techniques invented more than 1,000 years ago, the camera obscura. She gives this technology a bold and surprising reinvention as her work turns entire rooms into the surface of a photograph, casting the view from the outside in.”
