Meet the people behind Ballarat’s iconic Sovereign Hill. Tony Evans’ evocative portraits of the staff and volunteers bring to life the unique experience of working at Sovereign Hill, as well as showing the people behind the olden-day characters they portray day in, day out. Shot using only natural light, in costume, the exhibition shows just how easy it is to imagine these characters living in the real days of the Victorian gold rush.
In mid-2015, having worked in the corporate world for almost a decade, Tony Evans took up photography full-time. While shooting predominantly weddings and tourism campaigns, he has a passion for portraits, predominantly using natural light. Evans’ inspiration comes from the work of Bill Henson, Trent Parke and Sebastian Salgado.
