Eureka! Street. is an ode to the beauty of Ballarat suburbia, captured on 35mm film. Catalysed by the artist’s move back to their childhood suburb of Ballarat East, the exhibition features street views and neighbourhood oddities. Martino’s first solo show seeks to evoke nostalgia and pride in local viewers, and intrigue in visitors and locals alike.
Alexander Martino is an amateur multidisciplinary with an affinity for film photography, drawn to the dichotomy of its spontaneity and inherent need for patience. Various interstate moves saw Martino exposed to a variety of suburban stories that inform and inspire his work, none more so than Ballarat.
Festival Passes for the 2021 Ballarat International Foto Biennale are on sale now.
