Gregory Ackland’s photographic series ‘Habitus’ references the traditions of Romanticism, but Ackland’s photographs also reflect the idea of a retreat inwards. A contemplation of the experience of place elevates these images beyond the picturesque to highlight an emotional response to the landscape.
Gregory is a head of photography at the Adelaide School for the Arts, and a talented photographic artist. If you get an opportunity to hear Greg speak at an artist talk, you will enjoy he deep love and understanding of art.
