Exhibition opening, Friday 8 July 6-8pm
Spectrum presents the work of 11 young Darwin-based photographers, aged from 6 to 15, who were each given a digital camera for 2 weeks and asked to photograph their world. These young photographers all share a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. Some took as few as 20 photos while others took over 300. The final selection for exhibition celebrates the unique and sometimes heightened aesthetic of each photographer and aims to encourage understanding and acceptance of autism. Conceived and coordinated by Darren McCallum & presented in association with Autism NT.
Spectrum is NCCA’s second pop-up exhibition for 2016, and will run over the w’end, until 2pm Sun 10 July.
