50 years in retrospect

By Karina Schulz Wharwood

A retrospective exhibition of Michael Silver’s 50 years of photography will be held at Magnet Galleries from December 7 until January 27.

Having shot 2000 rolls of film a year, there’s a lot of options but he has chosen a mix of portraits, landscapes and everyday stills.  It is a celebration of photography as art and a view of the world through his lens.

“I don’t consider it to be work, for me it is just something I do for fun,” Mr Silver said.

Both portraits of Michael (right) were taken by Neil McLeod – the earlier in St Kilda in 1966, the later in New Britain, PNG in 2012.

Magnet Gallery is at 640 Bourke St.  See www.magnet.org.au for further information.
