Paul Ciccetti was one of my students this past year and his work was innovative, interesting and exceptionally well produced. I always looked forward to seeing what he was producing in the darkroom and it isn't often that student images generate discussion amongst the staff as to whether they should be presented to the class. He definitely pushed a few buttons with some of his pix, but the strength of his work could not be denied and Paul was awarded the 'Cert IV Photoimaging Student of the Year' by Central Institute of Technology for 2011...and deservedly so.
Paul is just about to have his first solo exhibition which opens this Friday, 20 January 2012 at 6pm at 464 Smart Space on William Street in Northbridge, Perth.
Erotica: B&W Portraits is definitely a show that you should check out. Unfortunately he will only be exhibiting this work for two days before he relocates to Melbourne. So, take this small window of opportunity to see some excellent work from a really talented emerging photographer.
