Bowness Photography Prize

Acclaimed artist Rosemary Laing and Director of Agency and Senior Curator, Museums and Collections at University of Melbourne, Hannah Presley joined Director Anouska Phizacklea to narrow down hundreds of entries to a shortlist of 54 exceptional works to be exhibited as part of the 2022 Bowness Photography Prize.

The shortlist includes an exemplary line-up of contemporary Australian artists and traverses a range of landscape, architectural and portrait photographs. These works, created over the last twelve months, portray a diverse snapshot of contemporary photographic practice in Australia today.


This landscape holds grief | Paula Mahoney

Paula Mahoney's exhibition This landscape holds grief is the result of a residency at Q Bank Gallery in Queenstown Tasmania. This body of work explores the relationship between personal loss, our history and how grief can echo in the Australian landscape as an absence.


MGA acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong People, and recognises their continuing connection to the land and waterways. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend this to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.
