The Planet of Possibilities

Sydney-based photographer Tony Maniaty's latest exhibition features large-scale images from travels (2020-2023) in France, Britain, Greece, Turkey and Australia exploring concepts of beauty and fragility. "The interplay of human and natural beauty is immeasurable, and unique," says Maniaty. "The possibilities of what we might be beautiful, and what we can do with those discoveries, are endless. That’s why we continue to make art in these uncertain times, and why we embrace it: to broaden our imagination about what life on Earth is, and still can be, on this tiny speck of rock and water. To capture these moments is photography’s gift to the fragile planet we live on."
