Double Exposure is an annual collaboration between Capricornia Printmakers and Rockhampton Camera Club.
Double Exposure 2020 was cancelled due to Covid and while our normal venue subsequently closed we had a very successful 2021 Exhibition in the Walter Reid Cultural Centre.

Sarah Larsen, Printmaker
Des Dunne, Photographer
Des: 'I became interested in the migratory shorebirds after visiting Kinka Beach during their Australian migration. The Eastern Curlew particularly caught my attention and this photograph shows a number of the birds on the water's edge. We used them for our project to highlight their beauty and unique lifestyle.'
Sarah: 'On receiving Des's beautiful photographs, I was immediately struck by the movement and patterning in the images. I opted for a lino print showing both negative and positive space relationship and the movement of the water and foam set against the solid backdrop of the sky.'

Lynn Zelmer, Printmaker
Mark Collins, Photographer
A novice photographer, Mark made a number of photo expeditions to explore landscape photography, including trips up Mt Archer for images that we could stitch together into large panoramas. Lynn then worked digitally with two views: one looking over Rockhampton, the other north over Iron Pot locality.
Lynn gave Mark technical support for lighting, composition, etc, to take a head and shoulders photo of Lynn which has been digitally combined with a portion of the Rockhampton panorama for an "in context" portrait.
Our work for DE2020 had essentially been completed when COVID interfered. Although Mark has been unable to participate further this year, the works on exhibition demonstrate what we accomplished together last year.

Angela Heffer, Printmaker
Allan Reinikka, Photographer
Allan has been photographing events in and around Rockhampton, Queensland, since 2000. Angela selected one of Allan's photographs of a Mountain Bike race at First Turkey Mountain Bike Reserve as inspiration for Double Exposure.
The artists decided to interpret the image from two different points of view: through the eyes of the photographer; and through the eyes of a spectator.

Nora Hanasy, Printmaker
Simon Cox, Photographer
As there was no Double Exposure last year due to COVID restrictions, and we are still struggling with this virus worldwide, the theme of this pandemic seemed a fitting contemporary social issue to explore. How you interpret these works is up to you. We support the wearing of masks, social distancing and of course the vaccines available. We are both eager to travel again. We have family and friends both overseas and interstate that we cannot visit. The sooner we all do the right thing the better.

Sally North, Printmaker
Scott Reynolds, Photographer
Scott Reynolds, photographer and Sally North printmaker, decided to splash some colour around and show Rockhampton's historic Customs House in a different light with Scott's skilful photo, captured during a night light show at the Rocky River Festival.
Scott used the technique of in camera movement (ICM) with the zoom to create this unusual effect. Sally, thinking alternative print methods to suit the historic and colourful theme, used an appropriately suitable historic photographic printing method of gum bichromate to show a painterly aspect to this photograph.

Sally North, Photographer
As keen bird watchers, we decided to focus on shorebirds and their habitats in their local areas of Kinka Beach and Corio Bay. By making these artists books, we hope to bring a broader awareness of the fragile nature of these beautiful birds and their diminishing habitat.
We had made detailed plans for several field trips to observe, gather photos, printing materials, and above all, inspiration when COVID 19 emerged. Our one field trip to Kinka beach was a cold and rainy morning, both clad in raincoats, hats and gumboots, carrying cameras, drawing books and binoculars, and hardly a shorebird to be seen... a number of photos and sketches were achieved and some wonderful collections of shells, driftwood and plant material from this habitat were found.

Heather La Bash, Printmaker
Linda Rodgers, Photographer
Linda: Having shared some photos with Heather La Bash, Heather seemed intrigued with some rock images I'd taken at Farnborough Beach, Yeppoon. This inspired me to have some digital fun in Photoshop by overlaying the arms and magnifying glass over the original image. The see-through effect is a modern interpretation of film double exposure.
Heather: These works are an exploration of abstracted monotype based on seascape. Seascapes emerge from the variation in tone and shapes when the viewer allows themself a moment to rest in the print, perhaps finding something beautiful and mystical.

Linda Douglas, Printmaker
Sue Kraatz, Photographer
Linda: For many years, I've had a fascination with swans both as subjects of legends and as the universal image of creativity, grace, devotion, fidelity and peace. When Sue proposed the idea of a swan as our theme I realised an opportunity to use the image of migrating swans into various applications because prints don't always have to hang on a wall.
Sue: I was inspired by a beautiful marionette encountered in the Melbourne suburb of Canterbury to create my own version of Canterbury's Tales. In the original Canterbury Tales a group of pilgrims set out from an Inn on a journey to a shrine in Canterbury, Kent. In my story Miss Canterbury sets out from The Swan Hotel with her companion, a black swan, about to head on their journey and create their own tale.

Phillipa Sturgess, Printmaker
Sue Dunne, Photographer
A conversation over coffee led to the idea of exploring Rockhampton city locations as backdrops for images of the domestic in the form of a teapot and cup. After several excursions scouting Rockhampton's historic buildings and laneways we selected images that created an unexpected and intriguing synergy: curved lines of the teapot and mug echoing cast iron lacework while smooth, delicate porcelain contrasted against the rough texture of old bricks.
We both took this opportunity to practise printmaking techniques that we were unfamiliar with Ð collographs and lino prints.

'It is at the edges
that time thins.
Time which had been
dense and viscous
as amber suspending
intentions like bees
unseizes them'. (Kay Ryan)
Jasmine's self portrait shows a strong woman who fears she is becoming transparent, trapped in a world suspended in time and waiting for something to happen. Phillipa's fan design was inspired by the idea of time breaking and fading.
