Twenty-five years of photographic experience by one of the state’s top barristers and senior crown prosecutor will go on display at Tweed Regional Gallery from Friday (27 November).

The Maitland Regional Art Gallery touring exhibition will showcase a selection of photographs by Mark Tedeschi AM QC till 17 April next year.

During his 25 years as a prolific photographer, Tedeschi has won numerous prizes and awards as a testament to his dedication to the art of photography.

This dedication is matched only by his commitment to the other side of his life as Senior Crown Prosecutor for NSW, where he is well known for prosecuting some of the most significant criminal trials in the state.

Tweed Regional Gallery director Susi Muddiman OAM said Tedeschi had ‘capitalised on his unique position as both artist and Crown Prosecutor to reveal a rare insight into the cloistered world of the justice system and the personalities who work within it’.

‘This unparalleled access has resulted in the photographs of barristers and judges, revealing themselves to him and then to us, still in their robes but doing ‘their own thing’ – pursuing their hobbies, pastimes and private passions,’ Ms Muddiman said.

‘Many of Mark’s images are enigmatic, humorous, and deep with subtle meaning. His special ability is to move across cultural boundaries and engage with people from a wide variety of milieu.

‘The photographs in this exhibition are a selection from his many series and include images ranging from insightful portraits of prominent Australian artists, his compassionate view of the Aboriginal urban communities of Redfern in the 1980s and intriguing domestic interiors to images from the streets of Italy, China and New York,’ she said.

On Sunday 6 March 2016 at 11am (DST), there will be a chance to hear more about the photographic series included in the exhibition and how he combines photography with his work as a Crown Prosecutor.
