Review in The Age by Dan Rule 03/07/10:
MELBOURNE'S Lauren Bamford and Karl Scullin - better known by his musical moniker, Kes - bring their photographic practice to a gallery setting for the first time with this series of portraits, each of which feature two indie rock scene subjects. Each artist takes a different approach to portraiture. Scullin's work, much of which has been lifted from album covers he's shot of several Melbourne bands, is loose and situational, relying on texture and hue. At least one of his subjects, which include the late Rowland S. Howard, is often hidden, blurred or obscured from full view. Bamford's work, however, is highly formalised. Her high-contrast monochrome prints, presented as diptychs, capture musical and artistic subjects, centre-frame, posing in their domestic or creative spaces. It's an interesting collection from two very talented photographers.
