Stella-Rae Zelnik

26 Oct

I met photographer Stella-Rae Zelnik last week and I was like, “Woah, mucho gusto!”. We were both at the launch of the Vagabondage Art Exhibition at The Front Gallery and Café in Canberra, a skateboard art exhibition that was on display from October 16 to 21. The exhibition was a celebration of skateboarding as a culture and a community with photography and installation pieces that aimed to portray the artistic relationship between rider and location, with particular emphasis on the city of Canberra. The exhibition featured select pieces of Stella’s work which she had recently shown for her solo exhibition ‘All Work and No Play’ as part of this year’s VIVID National Photography Festival. In that exhibition Stella documented the Canberra skate scene using 35mm film and an old Olympus. The resulting images are muy sabroso…

Stella’s work isn’t restricted to skate culture. For her latest exhibition she worked with James Thompson to merge different styles of live band photography. To view more of Stella’s work go here. And, while you’re there, check out her post entitled “Queanbeyan Streets”. I’ve never seen QBN look so good!

To see Stella talk about her work go here or to listen to Luke Brown, co-curator and co-exhibitor of Vagabondage, talk about the exhibtion click here.
