I'm guessing there'd be two kinds of Gizmodians — those who remember the halcyon days of Australian current affairs television when Ray Martin wore a doyen's cap, and those who don't remember such a time. For those who do remember Ray, and who are in Sydney tomorrow (Wednesday, September 22) might like to take a squizz at Ray's photo exhibition.
Veteran Australian journalist Ray Martin has his LUMIX Life exhibition on show at the Global Gallery in Paddington, Sydney, at 2pm. Among the images on show are those from hot spots he has covered as a TV journo, including images taken of Aceh, a few days after the devastating tsunami struck on Boxing Day, 2004, and the photo of Paris, above.
Photographers from around the world were encouraged to shoot and upload images at www.lumixlife.com.au and share their story, creativity or passion. A new exhibition, featuring a collection of 10 images, will be hosted every few hours during the gallery’s opening hours. Each exhibition will be displayed on a Panasonic Full High Definition Commercial Plasma Display Panel, to ensure the images are magnificently presented.
Ray Martin is one of 50 photographers whose LUMIX Life exhibitions will be shown over the next month. Photographers were encouraged to shoot and upload their 10 best LUMIX images and share their story, creativity or passion. All exhibitions can also be viewed on the website via webcams that have been set up at the gallery.
The full list of the 50 selected photographers is online on the "Selected Exhibitions" page of LUMIX Life. A detailed daily schedule can be seen on the "Now Showing" page.
