Nine contemporary artists come together for Contemporary Female Photo Artistsan exhibition exploring aspects of time and space taking over the main gallery at Artereal from August 2–24. From the emerging to the well-established, each artist displayed uses experimental and cutting-edge photo based practices to overthrow traditional expectations of the medium and challenge our conventional understandings of what photography's all about.

You can expect dreamy, nostalgic magic from Anna Carey (her exhibition earlier in the year, In Search of Rainbowswas a total delight), poignant images of the aftermath of a kid's birthday party from Anna MacDonald, Jess MacNeil's directing painting on 16mm film, 'no-camera' burnt images by Zan Wimberley, plus multi-layered works from Rebecca Beardmore that combine printmaking with photography to interrogate the act of looking itself. You'll also see work from Shoufay Derz, Emily Sandrussi, Simone Douglas and Svetlana Bailey.

Fans of contemporary photography should definitely put this one in the diary. In caps.
