Salon Des Refusés...



In the city yesterday to see the Black Swan Prize for Portraiture exhibition at the Linton and Kay Galleries on St. Georges Terrace, more about that tomorrow, slipped over to Brookfield Place to see portraits in the Salon des Refuses exhibition.  A 'stand-alone exhibition of works that narrowly miss out on being finalists of the highly acclaimed Black Swan Prize'. Brookfield Place is all glass and mirrors, perfect for reflections :) I hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever you're up to, take care and stay safe...
Visit James here to see more reflections from around the world..

  1. Boy, talk about disappointing...I looked these photos over and over again searching for my entry! I know it was there; I remember exactly when the proprietors said they would use my photo 'cause it was so appropriate!

    Oh, wait a minute. I'm sorry. I got confused. My entry, I think, was for the Salon Des Garbages! Sheesh!

  11. There are a few great street portrait photographers from Perth that I follow on flickr. Maybe you should stalk them for a day or two. I'm sure you could take some really good street portraits if you dare to try!

  17. Using French is a gentle way of identifying the also-rans. Still, from what you show us, I'd love to see the exhibit.
