A collection of images by Lauren Connelly 2015-2018
Recently nominated for National Live Music Photographer of the Year, Adelaide photographer Lauren Connelly aka LALA.photo invites you to help celebrate a highly successful 2018 with her new solo exhibition 'GRADUATION'.
Since her last showing in 2015, Lauren has quietly and steadily continued to build her reputation as a highly-regarded photographer within the Australian music industry. In September she graduated from the University of Adelaide with a Bachelor of Media and Photography, having developed a strong portraiture portfolio featuring a variety of up and coming Adelaide musicians, artists and identities. A challenging move away from live music, Lauren's portrait photography is now some of her most recognised work.
Featuring over 60 images of local, national and international artists, 'GRADUATION' is a chronological journey of Lauren's music, portrait and lifestyle photography that aims to celebrate not only her university graduation, but the gradual progression of Lauren's move from live music to portraiture.
GRADUATION opens on Thursday November 29th at 6pm, upstairs at the Grace Emily Hotel. Come down early for a free wine on entry from Alpha Box & Dice.
Featuring performances by some of Lauren's favourite Adelaide musicians - Alana Jagt, MULE and Jessica Johns (Dead Roo).
Prints for sale on the night. Open daily from 4pm-8pm until 10th December.
