Lumina- meaning to illuminate- is a new Australian collective of eight award winning female photographers, all of whom are leading practitioners in the documentary genre. Their first exhibition, Lumina, will run from June 6 to June 18 at Sydney's Black Eye Gallery.

Lumina’s aim is to reveal diverse stories and narratives within the Australian landscape and further afield. The exhibition seeks to present a blending of visions highlighting the unique perspective of each member in a unified show.

Lumina instigators Morganna Magee and Aletheia Casey were inspired to create a collective to make room for newer voices alongside established, award-winning names. “We invited members who see the world in visually arresting, different ways and whose images communicate depth, sensitivity and thoughtfulness to our social and geographic environment,” said Casey.

“The result is a highly motivated group of talented photographic artists articulating Australian identity and experience.”

Founding members are: Donna Bailey, Chloe Bartram, Jessie Boylan, Aletheia Casey, Anna Maria Antoinette D'Addario, Lyndal Irons, Morganna Magee and Sarah Rhodes.
