PORTAL 2016

Capturing 24 hours of coastal living through your lens

About

Devonport Regional Gallery presents the community exhibition, PORTAL, featuring 78 photographs from residents and visitors in Tasmania’s North West captured on Saturday 2 January 2016. The exhibition will be on display in the windows of 18 Rooke Street, Devonport from 22nd to 31st of January, 2016.

Participants were encouraged to register their involvement through the Gallery’s website prior to Capture Day on 2 January – of which 81 registrations were collected. Participants were then asked to capture any moment from their day on Saturday 2 January from across the North West. Photographs were received from Marrawah to Bakers Beach and at various times across the 24 hour period.

PORTAL provides us with a glimpse of life in this small corner of the world and celebrates the things and experiences we enjoy, cherish and love. Above all, PORTAL is a project about place – the places we inhabit and the places we explore. These photographs, which have captured fleeting ordinary moments in our day, provide an insight into our identity through the places we call home and the places that lure us in.

The featured image is by PORTAL participant Audrey Pangas. This is a picture of Audrey’s ‘baby’ on the floor of her bedroom in Gawler, the bedroom that was also the childhood bedroom of her two uncles and her two great aunts before that.  Three generations of a family’s childhood to which this vintage carpet has born witness.
