A Photographic Homage in Byron | Toby Burrows interview for the Northern Star

Words by Helen Hawkes
It’s the mystery that surrounds a photo that photographer Toby Burrows likes to focus on in his work.

“I love the anonymity, the obscurity… the idea that you don’t know the whole story,” he says.

Four of Burrows’ works are currently on display in Shutterspeed, which opened at Retrospect Galleries in Byron Bay last night and runs until Mark 31. Shutterspeed asks questions with both beautiful and haunting figurative imagery and pays homage to our culture with a photographic nod at a larger history of landscape representation.
It features work by Alberto Sanchez, Ali Mitton, Charlie Gordon, Justin Ealand, Mari Hirata, Perran Costi, Trevor Worden and Burrows.
