'A photographic look at life in North Queensland.'

Lose yourself in the incredible views of North Queensland documentary photographer Gavin Bain. This pop up presents Bain's 35mm film photographs which range from organic landscape scenes to snippets of international tourism, everyday residential commutes and the local workforce. The artist's unique perspective highlights the diversity and beauty of North Queensland.

About the Artist

Gavin Bain has spent the last 10 years focused on telling visual stories. He has recently turned his focus to the documentation of North Queensland (NQ), where he calls home. Bain’s aspiration is to solidify a historical record of NQ life using tangible mediums that can survive the ever-changing and fast-paced digital world.
