DEPOSITORY - A Hung Supply Group Show

"Depository: A Captivating Photography Exhibition at Wester Gallery"

Sling Goods and camera carry brand Hung Supply proudly presents DEPOSITORY, a group photography show.

Last night, the vibrant heart of Newcastle's West End came alive once again with the return of a much-anticipated art event. Curated by the talented team at Hung Supply, Wester Gallery played host to an extraordinary exhibition that had us all in awe.

More than a brand, Hung Supply is motivated by the intersections of cities, people and sub-cultures and exists to influence creative output within these spaces. An assemblage of images from Hung Supply’s global creative community, DEPOSITORY consists of daily observations and street scenes predominantly shot on 35mm + 120 film.

The walls of Wester Gallery were transformed into a canvas, adorned with captivating works by some of our most cherished local and international photographers. The exhibition's theme? Gritty and filmic photography, a visual journey that transported us into the intriguing world of analog storytelling.

As we stepped into the gallery, our eyes were treated to a feast of visual delights. Each photograph told a unique story, capturing moments frozen in time with an unmistakable filmic quality. The exhibition space was alive with the hum of excitement as art enthusiasts and creatives from all walks of life came together to celebrate the power of visual storytelling.

Armed with refreshing Pals and Steel City beverages, we embarked on a journey through this bustling artistic space. It was a night of connections and camaraderie, as we mingled and bumped shoulders with some of Newcastle's most brilliant minds and creative souls. The energy in the room was palpable, a testament to the magnetic pull of art in our lives.

"Depository" promises to be a spectacular showcase of talent, and the best part is, you have four whole weeks to experience it. So mark your calendars, gather your friends, and make your way to Wester Gallery. Don't miss the chance to immerse yourself in the captivating world of filmic photography.

This exhibition is a testament to the thriving art scene here in Newcastle, a place where creativity knows no bounds. It's a reminder of the power of art to transport us, inspire us, and bring us together. "Depository" is more than just an exhibition; it's an invitation to explore the rich tapestry of visual storytelling that defines our world.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Hung Supply and the talented photographers who contributed their works to this remarkable exhibition. Your vision and passion continue to enrich our lives and inspire us all.

Join us on this artistic journey, and let's celebrate the magic of photography at Wester Gallery. "Depository" is a must-see, and we can't wait to see you there!
