Master German photographer Sven Marquardt will be the subject of dual exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne this May. Splitting his time between his art and working the door at Berlin's exclusive Berghain nightclub, Marquardt has become an icon both at home and abroad as a result of his striking black and white photographs, captured exclusively using analogue cameras. Now, thanks to the Goethe-Institut, he's on his way to Australia.
Marquardt's first stop will be in Melbourne, where he'll introduce Fotografien, a five-week exhibition of his work at The Substation in Newport. After that it's on to Sydney for the launch of Future's Past, a two-and-a-half week show at Ambush Gallery in Chippendale, co-presented by the Head On Photo Festival. Shutterbugs, don't let this one pass you by.
