Experience an immersive exhibition by Adelaide based Magnum photographer Trent Parke. Parke’s extraordinary images—at times poetic and harsh—present a visual narrative in which small seemingly inconsequential moments of life take on a greater significance and symbolic meaning. The culmination of seven years’ work, The Black Rose is a meditation on life journeys, reflecting on the way in which the past infiltrates the present, and in turn can influence the future.
