Robyn Beeche – Retrospective Photography Exhibition

Sydney based Black Eye Gallery presents a retrospective of the late Robyn Beeche.

Starting today (February 2, 2016), Black Eye Gallery in Sydney, Australia proudly presents a retrospective photography exhibition of the late Robyn Beeche. The exhibition will run until February 28, 2016.

Aged 70, Robyn Beeche sadly passed away of a stomach tumour in 2015. The native Sydney photographer has captured different worlds from various eras ranging from early post-punk to new romantic fashion and music scenes of the 1980s. We also remember her fascinating shots of the Hindu ceremonies held in the Indian pilgrimage town of Vrindayan, Uttar Pradesh.

Robyn Beeche received a lot of recognition in London for a range of photographs of painted bodies and faces. She often worked for names such as Zandra Rhodes, Vivienne Westwood, Leigh Bowery and Divinein in order to create these kinds of physical transformations of human bodies into sculptures.

After numerous trips to India in the 1980s, Robyn Beeche decided to move to the pilgrimage town of Vrindavan in 1992. For the next three decades, her work was focused primarily on India’s culture as well as dye-drenching ecstasies of religious rituals and festivities. Beeche’s photos of the color saturated Holi festival in Vrindayan go perfectly along with her experimental work with diverse makeup artists.

If you’re in or around Sydney these days, you shouldn’t miss this exhibition at the Black Eye Gallery. For additional information, check out here.
