Horizon Festival | Sunshine Coast // 27 Aug - 5 Sep 2021

I Sea U - Participants

Over the past nine years, Sunshine Coast photographer Keith Hamlyn has been capturing portraits of people in the sea, documenting their collective connection to the ocean through a stunning portrait series, I Sea U.   


Horizon Festival has partnered with Keith to build upon I Sea U, capturing members of the community from Currimundi to Golden Beach and the stories of their unique connection to the sea.   
Explore this beautiful exhibition at Caloundra Regional Gallery from Friday 15 Oct – Sunday 5 Dec, with a smaller collection of works also displayed in the lightboxes at Subtropic Studio, Caloundra. 
Experience the power and intimacy of the sea through the lens of I Sea U
“For me a big part of being Australian or for that matter human, is our relationship to water. Even if we come from the desert, the moment we meet the water there is a transformation, and for each of us we are taken somewhere of our own knowing. In this imagery I hope to capture people in that space, so that perhaps we the observers can search out where these subjects have gone and truly see them for the first time.” 

– Keith Hamlyn, Photographer
