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.
