project 03 eye

Fast jump into h-ours' third project, 'eye', came from a chat with Le Space founder, Ying Ang, on the fragmentation of audience that we observe within the creative spaces here in Australian. For fashion, photography, music and art - industries that are meant to celebrate and communicate diversity, challenge thinking and create emotions - shouldn't there be greater access and an audience that represents the true demographic of Australia?

Project 03 'eye' isn't loud and there isn't much really needed from h-ours, but exists as a collaboration to align where h-ours will be going as a creative platform - which is to, to celebrate and bring together diverse communities within creative spaces in Australia.

@le_space_le_space’s exhibition with Nanna Heitmann (@nannaheitmann) and Sim Chi Yin (@chiyin_sim) was the perfect invitation to start. They are the youngest and the first female asian photographers, respectively, represented by Magnum Photos. And that's a pretty big deal.
