Kate Robertson - People, Dust, and a Whole Lot of Spirit

Lars Nissen, Untitled 2011

Kate Robertson is part of a group exhibition held at Rae & Bennett Gallery. The show, People, Dust and a Whole Lot of Spirit, consists of a collection of photographs and archives relating to ConFest, Australia’s first alternative life-style festival.

I had never heard of ConFest before this exhibition. I discovered something new about one of Australia’s subcultures. Robertson’s images are worth checking out. Her 2 photos of falling dust were¬†an amalgamation of several dust images¬†taken with various media. Since these images were the most open to interpretation, there was something very captivating about it.
