To be opened by: Stephen Zagala, Curator, Monash Gallery of Art

Plenty explores the margins of Plenty Road between Bundoora and South Morang, where Melbourne’s outer urban development meets the grassy eucalypt woodland of the Victorian Volcanic Plain. The photographs reveal a strange and compelling mixture of excess and decay, opportunity and loss as the landscape undergoes dramatic change.

Tim Handfield’s work is held in local and international collections including those of the National Gallery of Victoria, the National Gallery of Australia, Artbank and the Museum of Photographic Art, San Diego, CA.
