Patrick Pound in 'Exchange Value' at QUT Art Museum

16th Feb 2019

Patrick Pound is included in ‘Exchange Value’ at QUT Art Museum, open from today until 28 April.

‘Exchange Value’ brings together the works of 11 Australian and international photographers in an exhibition that offers rich and challenging insights into the world of documentary photography. The exhibition explores close-up accounts of those on society's fringes – skinhead subculture in 1970s London, poor Egyptian neighbourhoods during the Arab Spring, the sterile confines of a mental institution – as well as the photographers documenting them. As the relationship between photographer and subject becomes visible, so does the potential for greater possibilities in image making.
