Polly Borland: Polyverse

Spending her career photographing some of pop culture's most iconic people including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, musician Nick Cave and actress Gwendoline Christie, Australian photographer Polly Borland has returned home with a brand new exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.

On display at The Ian Potter Centre from September 28 to February 3 next year, Polyverse showcases 60 of Borland's surrealistic photographs captured over the last decade. Recognised for her dedication to shooting on film, Borland's strict creative process means she never alters images in post-production, instead working singlemindedly to capture the perfect image.

Polyverse will also feature a tapestry recreation of Borland's renowned portrait of The Queen. Having collaborated with prisoner advocacy organisation Fine Cell Work, which trains prisoners in highly-skilled needlework, this work will be displayed, for the first time, as double-sided, showcasing not only Borland's expert composition, but also the intricate needlework of the prisoners.

Borland has worked with some of the biggest names across arts and culture, making this exhibition an exciting opportunity to view the work of one of Australia's leading photography exports in the flesh — for free.
