Take Your Best Shot
14 May – 8 June 2013
Take Your Best Shot, Emma Thomson’s first solo exhibition at Galerie pompom, depicts the ritual of women who take part in the tradition of hunting. Thomson’s photographs engage these women after the hunt in Central Western NSW where feral animals thrive. The portraits explore the willingness of her subjects to offer themselves in front of the camera and their desire to be seen.
This series of new work was made as part of a residency program at Dubbo Regional Gallery earlier this year and the complete series of work will be shown there in 2014. Take Your Best Shot is an associated exhibition of the Head On Photo Festival.
