On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 11am to 5pm, the Corner Gallery will host an exhibition of photographs by Tony Egan and Philip Bell, many portraits of Australian musicians, others, landscapes or formal studies, from their respective back catalogues.
Held in conjunction with the Stanmore Music Festival commencing on Saturday, 18th November, several acts will be performing in front of The Corner Gallery. Percival Road and adjoining streets will be alive with bands, singers and dancers.
A double event not to be missed!
About Tony Egan
Tony has been practicing photography seriously for over 30 years. His favourite medium is black and white film photography printed on silver gelatin paper in his own darkroom.
Black and white photographic film is essentially a minute layer of silver halides trapped in a layer of emulsion and when exposed to light, and later accelerated by a developing agent, forms an image of “negative” graduated grey tones.
His favourite subjects range from the dynamic atmosphere of live music, shooting fast and instinctively , to the contemplative landscapes which open up on long walks in more remote parts of the Australian bush and around the world.
Tony Egan’s darkroom studio offers a range of photography restoration and printing services including negative and slide scanning, dust/scratch removal, colour corrections and cropping.

About Philip Bell
Philip Bell has exhibited photographs of Australian landscapes in Sydney and Copenhagen, and has published several articles of photojournalism on Australian geographical regions.
“I photograph nature, aware of the threat from climate change and human degradation that Australian landforms confront. I use quite long exposure and low light settings because I don’t mind a soft image, one that is pushed to lose the sheen that I associate with digital tourism and advertising imagery.”
