What makes the streets so interesting to photographers? 

Inspired by the early street photography of Abraham ‘Izzy Orloff’ (1919-1935), this panel of contemporary photographers and artists will explore the metaphor of the ‘street as theatre’ drawing on examples and experiences from their own work.

Panel Members

Kerry Faulkner 
Kerry Faulkner is a multi-award winning freelance journalist moving increasingly into photojournalism. Her street photography images have been in exhibitions in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and New York and featured in a number of international publications including Street Photography Magazine and International Street Photography and Reportage. Her work is also part of the WA State Library collection. She describes her style of street photography as ‘fast and loose’ and says she has a genuine interest in, and curiosity about, the people she photographs. Creatively, Kerry thrives on the risk and daring of the ‘jetty jumpers’, the passion and energy of the beachside salsa dancers and the camaraderie and resilience of square dancers in the old hall in White Gum Valley. These are just a few of her favourite haunts however one of her great skills is finding fertile new places and groups of people for imagery that show life as it is –no filter, like ‘Floki’ the street barber, cutting the hair of the homeless in Perth’s CBD which The Guardian featured as picture essay October 2021. She is a member of the Australian Association of Street Photographer Inc (AASPI).  

Kirsty Greenland

Her images are defined by colour and movement and the play between light and shadows. She loves exploring Perth’s beaches in summer and is completely unable to resist a street parade.

Julie Kerbel

She creates stories through her visual communication, always trying to reveal a heartfelt connection and honesty.
