The NCCA proudly premiered PROOF: Photo Essays from the Top End as a tribute to photojournalists working in this region and to the multi-layered richness of the region itself – its stories and subtexts, topical and timeless. Representing the work of veterans in the field and emerging talents, PROOF includes photo essays spanning the careers of longstanding Territory photographers Clive Hyde and Baz Ledwidge alongside the work of established and emerging photojournalists.
Presented by a curatorial team (Maurice O’Riordan, Director, NCCA; Crystal Thomas, independent curator; and Glenn Campbell, photojournalist) PROOF showed simultaneously at the Darwin Waterfront and at NCCA. Participating artists: Clive Hyde, Baz Ledwidge, Glenn Campbell, Daniel Hartley-Allen, Elise Derwin, Andrew Quilty, Megan Lewis, Made Nagi, Martine Perret, Ed Wray, Régis Martin and Frédéric Mit, and Brian Cassey.Presented in association with the Darwin Waterfront Authority.
A smaller version of the exhibition will be presented at Godinmayin Yijard Rivers Arts & Culture Centre, Katherine in April 2015.
