Lightning Without Flash is a solo exhibition by documentary photographer Joe Ruckli which seeks to unearth the idiosyncratic qualities of Lightning Ridge, a rural mining town in northern New South Wales famous for its large deposits of Black Opal. Scorched by the sun and secluded deep within Australia's vast interior, the photographs and objects reveal strange and surreal glimpses of life on the minefields and its fringes; a subterranean world where prospectors chase their fortune and hermits search for somewhere to disappear.
Where: Webb Gallery, 226 Grey Street, South Bank, 4101
