“The Documentary Take” exhibition, Ponch Hawkes

Long after the instant of their taking, the silent, sublime images of documentary photographer Walker Evans (1903 —1975) continue to resonate. MAPgroup photographer Ponch Hawkes is one of several artists who have been invited to respond to Evans’ work in the exhibition Walker Evans and selected Australian art- the documentary take, held at the Centre for Contemporary Photography, as part of the Melbourne Festival. Ponch’s series, These women have just run 26 miles, is from a time in history when sporting authorities thought women were not strong enough for a 42 kilometre (26 mile) event.

Until 13 November
