Suburban Vintage - Wine Makers of Darebin
Laki Sideris, 2021
A suburban winery beyond the doorstep. The labour and the joy. Characters and stories.
Award-winning Darebin photographer Laki Sideris visited regular entrants in Darebin’s amateur homemade wine competition at home. He hoped to illuminate the personalities of these talented makers and honour their traditional skills.
The result is beautifully atmospheric work that is part portraiture and part documentary. Comprising short multimedia works and a striking series of still portraits, this exhibition celebrates the link between wine, culture and the migrant experience.
Laki Sideris has presented his work in solo and group exhibitions throughout Australia including the Centre of Contemporary Photography, Yarra Ranges Regional Museum, Gold Coast Art Centre and Tweed River Art Gallery. He was twice featured artist at Sydney’s Head on Photo Festival. He has been a finalist in numerous awards including the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize CCP Documentary Photography Award, Josephine Ulrick Photographic & Win Schubert Award and Olive Cotton Award for Photographic Portraiture.
