Each year Mackintosh Photography is commissioned by Leichhardt Council to photograph local artist's in the Rozelle, Balmain, Leichhardt and Lilyfield suburbs in Sydney's Inner West.
"I love crafting these candid portraits of the artist. Often they are shy at first but then warm up a bit when we casually chat about their painting, sculptures, ceramics or art installations. The galleries and studios are in old disused buildings, warehouses or even their own homes. Fascinating to visit. "It's a very rewarding and creative photographic assignment." - Justin Mackintosh, Photographer.
LOST 2016 was the fifth run of the popular studio trail, which is growing in strength, and numbers each year. LOST 2016 saw 58 spaces open their doors on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 March, 2016.
Each year we find new artists willing to open their doors into normally private worlds, joining forces on the trail to showcase the strength and diversity of the arts community in our local area. LOST offers opportunities to join guided bicycle tours, attend free workshops, participate in hands on activities, and much more.
LOST invites the wider public to see a wide range of creative ventures, and with such a wide array of genres, styles and materials in use, everyone will be able to find a number of artworks that speak to them personally in the way only art can. Visitors to LOST 2016 had the opportunity to view street art, video, painting, sculpture, mixed media, stencil art, illustration, printmaking, mosaics, glass art, ceramics, flute making, furniture making, millinery, photography, jewellery, drawing and textile art.
