Biennale of Sydney 2014

Good morning!

Today I would love to share with you some of my pics from a recent trip to the Biennale of Sydney 2014. I admit, I really only saw a small fraction of the event featured at the MCA and Cockatoo Island, but it was enough to re-ignite my love of art and creativity! So many intriguing works and oh my gosh, how great was Cockatoo Island as a choice of venue? That place is truly spectacular all on its own! I found myself photographing my setting just as much as the artworks, it was so fun to get the old SLR out snapping again.

So please enjoy my mini tour as a teaser of this fabulous international art event. The Biennale of Sydney runs until the 9th June 2014, so go and check it out for yourself if you are in Sydney. I’m hoping to get back at some stage to take in the full spectrum of venues and works too!

The bright artworks by Glasgow-based artist Jim Lambie “Zobop” were a huge favourite of mine, so fun for all the viewers to interact with and become immersed in – Vinyl Tape and Varnish

  4. You have such stunning shots! Would you mind if I asked what kind of camera you used? Oh dear, I feel like a complete knock head photographer compared to you haha.

    • Sure! I use a Canon EOS 600D, it’s a good mid-range camera body that wasn’t too expensive to purchase. I currently only have a Canon 50mm lens and a Tamron 17-50mm lens but am hoping to upgrade to something with a longer focal length soon! Thanks for your nice comments too, I have a background in press photography but haven’t shot in years so am feeling very rusty!!
