'Time & Space' by Sean Fennessy

17th October, 2018

We’ve never held a TDF Collect exhibition like this before!

We’re SO excited to present Time & Space by OG TDF collaborator, Sean Fennessy, for our very first photography exhibition. A diverse survey of works collected over the last decade, Time & Space draws from Sean’s extensive travel archive – and man, he’s been to some AMAZING places.

When Lucy first started TDF ten years ago, Sean was one of the first photographers she worked with to shoot feature stories for the website, capturing Australian homes across the country with an architectural and artistic eye that has helped define the ‘TDF style’ we’re still known for today. Time & Space is a series of breathtaking works of moments great and small – vast landscapes captured from a bird’s eye of view are like artworks, whilst quiet, everyday scenery takes on new significance through Sean’s lens.

The exhibition will be open for five days at our TDF Collect gallery in Collingwood, with opening celebrations taking place this Saturday, October 20th, from 2pm-5pm. Please pop by for a drink to see these breathtaking works in person (and maybe snag one for yourself!).

Please join us, and Sean, for the opening of Time & Space  this Saturday, October 20th!

All the works in this show are now pictured on the TDF Collect website – sales enquiries, email art@thedesignfiles.net.
