Photo Exhibition by Sydney Photographer Jutta Malnic
The beautiful photo series Mwaga, A Bird at the End of the World
was first shown at the Goethe-Institut in Sydney in November 2017, then at the Burrinja Cultural Centre near Melbourne in May 2018, followed by the Goethe-Institut in New Zealand, and now it comes to the Australian Embassy in Berlin!
The Sydney-based photographer Jutta Malnic is now in her mid-nineties. Over her lifetime she has accumulated a vast collection of photographies. Born in Berlin to a German father and Australian mother, she moved to Australia in 1948, so it is especially poignant that her work now comes to Berlin.
In Sydney she worked as an on-board photographer on a shipping line, going on 72 cruises around the Pacific islands between 1950 and 1969. The series Mwaga, A Bird at the End of the World
is themed around a local bird species called Mwaga. Ancient Polynesian seafarers used these birds’ behaviour and movements as a navigation tool.
The exhibition tells a moving tale of the close relationship between humans and animals as they live together in a near-synergetic relationship.
The exhibition can be visited during opening hours of the Embassy (Mon-Fri- 8:30am-7pm) without admission.
Opening: 03.12.2019 at 6pm.
