Local photographer flying high for exhibition

EX-MANDURAH resident and photographer Jarrad Seng will feature in the repurpose of an iconic Fremantle building.

The old Myer building is being turned into an innovative and creatively inspired destination with the ground floor dedicated to exhibition space, Feast Your Eyes OUTPOST.

Seng, who is currently based in Tanzania, has come back to Western Australia for the inaugural exhibition, a l l t e r v a t n.

The solo exhibition sees the photographer take to extreme heights, with his shots taken from the window of a light aircraft at altitudes of 1000feet.

“It was certainly not the most comfortable of experiences battling the wind, the cold and the turbulence,” Seng said. 

“But I would take to the clouds again in a second for the rare chance to witness the Earth’s beauty from above.”

Seng captured surreal images of volcanic rivers cascading across Iceland’s mountainous lava desert and wasteland.

The photographs appear more akin to abstract paintings as they depict the unique geothermic landscapes of the country.

The 25-year-old has steadily gained recognition as a creative force to be reckoned with.

This year he has been involved in mento­ring initiatives with remote indigenous communities, Perth Fashion Festival’s Windows of the City and is currently working with an orphanage in Tanzania, resulting in a nomination for the WA Young Person of the Year awards.

Seng generated international attention this year after touring with British musician Passenger across United Kingdom and Europe.

His talents have also seen him collaborating with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Matt Corby and Matchbox Twenty.

This exhibition gives Perth the opportunity to view Jarrad Seng’s first progression into aerial and landscape photography whilst also celebrating the grand opening of Feast Your Eyes OUTPOST.

OUTPOST opened its doors for the first time on Sunday.

Jarrad Seng will showcase his first step into aerial and landscape photography this month.
