Blog image: “Ollie 17 Yrs” © Emma Leslie, from Transcend: Portraits of Transgender and Gender Diverse Youth – one of two exhibitions opening as part of  The Art of Gender, 1 September 6-8pm at Canvas Bar

The exhibition features work by Emma and painter Robyn Ross. In her documentary exhibition, Emma showcases 10 transgender children aged 5-17 in an environment in which they feel comfortable.

Emma’s documentary work has been published by the BBC and Buzzfeed. The BBC article follows up to discuss the complex circumstances that create our gender, an interesting read. One of Emma’s subjects was also the subject of Australian Story’s About A Girl, which aired in August this year.

Artist Robyn Ross explores depictions of femininity in her show The Female Gaze – an ironic take on the male gaze, and ideals of the feminine in art. More about Robyn’s work in an upcoming blog. (Image below: “Top Hat and Tails” © Robyn Ross)


Emma’s exhibition is sponsored by Family Planning NSW and endorsed by Twenty10.

Perry Lane Goes Abstract

For the Head On Photo Festival GkJE will be exhibiting the work of Dutch photographer Douwe Dijkstra at GkJE 2 – inside Not Just Coffee, Paddington.

GkJE has worked with Woollahra Council to create a placemaking event to transform Perry Lane into a place for people and activities: turf, tables, chairs, umbrellas and a giant snakes and ladders board will be in place between 12-4pm on Saturday 14 May.

The event will coincide with Head On Photo Festival exhibitions in the Paddington Reservoir on the other side of Oxford Street. The clever people at Head On have organised a Photobook Swap between 12-4pm. Join us in the laneway for a fun afternoon of coffee, photos, books and more.

Head On Photo Festival is the leading photography festival in Australia. This annual festival is run by Head On Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation, promoting the work of photographers at all stages of their careers; encouraging excellence and innovation, making photography accessible to all and raising awareness of important issues through photography.

Kindly sponsored by Place Partners, Mitre 10 and 32 Hundred Lighting, with generous support from Woollahra Council.
