The Exposure Photographic Program returns in 2021, bringing the art of storytelling to our community.

This year’s exhibition tells the story of recent world events. The images are sentimental and also challenging.

The work of 17 local photographers will be exhibited alongside some of the best in Australia, creating a local and national account of the past year.

Exposure has been led by Central Coast Council since 2014 and each year it evolves. This year, Council has partnered with the Head On Foundation to deliver a joint exhibition.

The most outstanding photographers to enter the Exposure program were invited to exhibit. This commission is an opportunity to develop new work and present it to the public.

Experience Exposure 2021 in-person at the traditional exhibition at Gosford and The Entrance and through taking a virtual tour.

Below is a taste of the beautiful and powerful work featured in Exposure 2021.

This year's exhibition is a personal account of the things that tested us, and a moment our time has never seen before. It shows us that art has the capacity to revitalise communities and build a sense of belonging, connectedness and healing.
