David Broker opened not one, but seven exhibitions (Guinness Book of Records?) at the Queensland Centre for Photography on Saturday evening and he also wrote most of the catalogue. They don’t do things by halves at QCP, however, you will be relieved to hear he didn’t deliver seven speeches. Nope, one for all. Mr db said that all of the artists had taken him on  journeys of discovery to destinations that had previously only existed in the murky recesses of the mind. Those interesting things you know about but don’t quite figure until a creative person brings them to one’s attention. All of the artists in this series of shows have been working in exotic, often far away places and spaces, from Morocco to Newcastle, Armenia, Japan, plus Brisbane’s backyards and mangrove swamps. Everyone has something unique and interesting to say about places they have visited photographed and videoed.  It was another great Saturday opening at QCP and plenty of fun loving photophiles many of whom continued the revelry well into the night. QCP Brisbane until 2 June.
