The Melbourne Silver Mine were commissioned by White Night Melbourne to document the 2014 White Night using their analogue ways.

As part of this commission a small exhibition was also staged on White Night. If you missed it you have a second chance to see the show.

12 Photographers, 12 photographs, all Melbourne, various analogue and traditional photographic techniques


Night Pinhole Shoot

The Melbourne Silver Mine has been commissioned by the folks at White Night Melbourne to help document this year’s event via a series of long exposure photographs.

The idea behind the MSM’s Exposure project is to use long exposure and pinhole photography to produce a unique photographic record of the event.

I’m very much looking forward to being a part of this project. in a rare moment of artistic pre-planning and forethought Lea and I took our light meters, stop watches and handy dandy notebooks into the city on Saturday night to test gear and assess practicalities.
