Hugh Freytag: Places and Spaces 2018
Hugh Freytag traverses the streets of Adelaide fascinated by the lines and shapes of spaces. With a keen eye for composition and depth of field he focusses on the contrast of light and dark with shadows and linear structures. This exhibition will take you to familiar spaces and some unknown in the city of Adelaide with large format photographs.
From taking photographs to processing them in his own darkroom Hugh enjoys the creative process as much as the technical side and you will see him carrying a camera everywhere he goes documenting what and who he sees along the way.
His top two cameras are a Rolleiflex and a Hasselblad, he prefers analogue cameras to digital however does use both and he has a substantial collection of old cameras dating back to the 1950’s. Hugh studied at art school in Adelaide in the 80’s and has a wealth of experience as a photographer and cinematographer and has worked in various roles in the SA film industry.
