Musical Hero

Giles Hugo

5 July 2019

Giles Hugo is a Tasmanian photographer who began his career as a documenter of nature (human and otherwise) in Johannesburg in the 1970’s. This exhibition spans from then until now, from the iconic Eric Clapton’s Rainbow Concert London in 1973 to Kate Miller Heidke in Hobart not too long ago.

From the black musicians of South Africa to the performers of today he captures the power and beauty of performance with perfectly composed images. The works also span remarkable changes in photographic technology with the earliest scanned from Ektachrome negatives or even in one case, a strip of contact prints.

This makes them heartbreakingly rare in a time of easily accessible digital technology.
