Desert Mob 2014: A Photographic Gallery

Lots of people wait all year to go to Alice Springs for Desert Mob.  I, sadly must rely on the kindness of–well not strangers–but rather old friends who bring Desert Mob to me.  Thanks to their generosity, I can now bring a taste of Desert Mob to you.

I’ve known Stephen Williamson and Sam Togni from ancient days in Darwin when Stephen was working for Framed.  We’ve remained close in the days since then that have taken him to posts all across Australia, and I was delighted when I learned that he had gone to Alice Springs to work at the Araluen Arts Centre.  I was even more delighted to learn that he would be responsible for the hang each year of the big Desert Mob show.  I’ve always admired Stephen’s eye and always appreciated his advice about artists to follow.  Now I have the chance to admire his skills as a curator each year.  I’m grateful to him for sharing these stunning photos of Desert Mob again this year, and hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I have, whether you’re experiencing the show for the first time now, or remembering it fondly.

Each of the images below is linked to a larger version; just click to enjoy the splendor in full.  Details of individual works can be seen at the Desert Mob 2014 website.
