A sense of place

A couple of great shows have just opened at Photoaccess in Manuka - highly recommended by yours truly, who had the honour of opening the exhibitions this week. Annette Lock is an artist-in-residence who recently revisited some old rolls of film she hadn't developed of photos taken at the Kingston Bus Depot in 1996, in a time when the building had fallen into disuse. There's something disorienting about seeing images of an abandoned, large-scale edifice in Canberra - there aren't many around these days. Also on is the latest Photoaccess members' exhibition, entitled One Great Place. As usual, artists have a wide variety of interpretations of this quite broad theme, from rooftops and pavements, to fine-tuned domestic landscapes. There is no escape, by Annette Lock and One Great Place, by Photoaccess members, are showing at Photoaccess, Manuka Arts Centre, Cnr Manuka Circle and New South Wales Crescent, Griffith (next to the Manuka Pool) until September 14.
