American documentary photographer and filmmaker, Nate Palmer, is hosting an exhibition of his latest project, ‘Known Rivers’; a portrait series investigating and celebrating the diversity within the bla(c)k community in Sydney. The work ventures on a journey to better understand the complexities of what it means to be bla(c)k in urban Australia today.

Palmer shared how the project idea stemmed from a desire “to have people from all different backgrounds together in one space to celebrate the things we actually share.” By accompanying his visual works with respective audio interviews of the subjects, this exhibition seeks to foster a space that inspires conversation within and between communities.
