Exposed says
For two weeks at the end of March Maud Gallery is delighted to showcase the exhibition - EXPOSED - images of travel and documentary by master photographer Mike Skelton.
EXPOSED presents a rare opportunity to experience an insightful and inspirational array of images. The exhibition reveals Skelton’s passion for photography, the creative process and his hopes for humanity.
EXPOSED is primarily an exhibition about contrasts; two-thirds of the works are photojournalism from developing nations and one-third evidence commercial work which Skelton notes, ‘bucks the norm’.
The images captured through Skelton’s creative lens reveal an insightful imagination and empathy at work. The masterful navigation draws on synergies and juxtapositions as the finely-tuned narration and aesthetic is informed and humbled by the reportage aid projects. The exhibition presents diverse opportunities to share a journey resonating with dignity, grace and beauty found in disparate places, as Skelton is moved and inspired by the tenacity of the human spirit to hold onto life in the face of overwhelming odds.

Mike Skelton has been a commercial photographer for 25 years. He has also travelled to many far-flung regions of the world to photograph for international aid organisations Plan International and The Hunger Project (THP). Voluntary work for Plan and THP started as a way of giving back for what he saw as his ‘privileged’ life in Australia. The aid work soon became his fascination and passion with his commercial work funding that passion.
Mike Skelton now lives at Tread Softly Farm on the Mid North Coast of NSW with his wife Carolyn and their three legged wonder dog, Zippy.
