Rocking Reflections

'United we stand No.4', 145 x 60cm, Giclee Print

Rocking Reflections is an exhibition of photographic portraits by Paula Mahoney at Rokeby Studios.

Rocking Reflections is a homage to the subcultures that live in, and visit Collingwood, holding a majestic space amongst this ever-changing suburb.

Mahoney’s portraits of heavy metal, rock and punk fans and musicians, taken into the early morning hours at the Bendigo Hotel in Collingwood are made in her makeshift studio, metres from the stage.

As performers scream and rage onstage, each photographed individual considers their own death. The participants all glance to the side lost in that universal moment, which is reflected in the groupings of four. Such personal acknowledgements of death are central to Mahoney’s work because it creates an awareness of our limits, and connects us to a greater whole and to each other.
