To celebrate the 10th year of elevating and supporting artists across Australia, The NotFair returns to create a space where artists, dealers, collectors and art lovers find each other and new relationships are formed. The NotFair seeks to establish a launchpad for artists without representation, and a space for artists to acquire a higher percentage of the sale price of their works. 

Explore the works of Shea Kirk, Ash Coates, Ceri Hann, Christian Bishop, Hayley Arjona, Joshua Bonson, Liss Fenwick and more.

Shea Kirk ‘Vantages VI MASSA’ 2021

Shea Kirk ‘Vantages VI MASSA’ 2021

Shea Kirk invites people to be photographed in his home studio for the ongoing stereoscopic series Vantages. Working with dual large format cameras, each portrait is exposed onto separate sheets of black and white film, simultaneously capturing two images of the sitter from different perspectives. The process is slow and methodical, enabling an intimate exchange that highlights the agency between photographer and subject. Conscious of their own vulnerabilities, they’re aware of what it means to represent themselves, and through the very nature of this dual-imaging process, resist being reduced to a single vantage point. Kirk is a Naarm/Melbourne-based contemporary artist working with traditional photographic methods and techniques. He won the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2020 Art Handlers’ Award, has been shortlisted for prizes including the Olive Cotton Award (2019); National Photographic Portrait Prize (2019); Head On Portrait Prize (2018 & 2019); Bowness Photography Prize (2020), and participated in a number of exhibitions across Australia. He has exhibited two selections from an ongoing portrait series titled Vantages – Centre for Contemporary Photography (2019) and Daine Singer for PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography (2021).
