Rehydrate – Joseph Cali

Joe’s Something Old, Something New is a retrospective photographic exhibition from a number of his bodies of work.

“In January 2011, large 100 year floods inundated Queensland. I was in Brisbane at the time and having driven there, was stuck for 10 days when the floods effectively cut Brisbane off from the rest of the country. Six months later, water from the same flood event finally reached Lake Eyre adding to the water of a smaller though still significant flood in 2010. I was at Lake Eyre a few weeks after the water arrived with the north lake 85% full. Much of the Rehydrate series was taken at this time.

“The two polyptych called Desiccate explore the desiccated sands and plant matter found on the periphery of salt lakes during periods of drought.

“In the Paris portfolio, I have tried to capture vignettes of street life in this most famous of cities.”

The exhibition is showing at the Huw Davies Gallery, Manuka Arts Centre until 13th October.

The paper selected by Joe for these prints was Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique, with some previously printed on Moab Entrada Rag Bright.
