When Nilmini Launched her first exhibition, Connections, in 2011 to show some of her favourite images from her 10 month journey around the world, she knew that using her photographic skills to inspire social change would become a major passion. Each image in the exhibition also included some challenging ideas and the ‘alluring image plus challenging text’ would become Nilmini’s trademark style.
Some of the images from the Connections exhibition would later be incorporated into the Fate or Destiny photobook helping to convey that story.
Fate or Destiny has now exhibited at the following locations:
- Hornsby Library, 27 Aug 2014 – 10 Sep 2014
- Wallsend District Library, Newcastle, 15 Sep 2014 – 25 Oct 2014
- Pine Street Gallery, Chippendale, 28 Oct 2014 – 10 Nov 2014
- North Sydney Pop Up-Shiny2, 2 Nov 2014 – 22 Dec 2014
- Red Fish Gallery, Brooklyn, 6 Jan 2015 – 10 Feb 2015
- Parramatta Pop Up, 24 Feb 2015 – 17 Apr 2015
- Hornsby Festival of the Arts, 12 Oct - 30 Oct 2015
Fate or Destiny is available for hire to regional galleries. If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Nilmini. For more information visit the National Exhibition Register (NETS)
The continuing success of Fate or Destiny has led to a range of other opportunities. The acclaim of her Associated HeadOn 2015 exhibtion Faces, Places, Races - Migrant Stories from the Hornsby Shire, has led Nilmini to extend this project to document stories of migrants, asylum seekers and refugees from around Australia that may form a larger exhibition and photo book in the future. If you wish to be part of this exhibition, please contact Nilmini. She is travelling around Australia with her partner and maybe coming to a town near you!
