A landmark exhibition documenting an often-overlooked side of Brisbane’s history will soon open at Brisbane’s premier photographic art gallery: Maud Street Photo Gallery in Newstead. 

Divine Brisbane is a fascinating record of Brisbane’s past that offers insights into a growing city’s growing diversity. From grand cathedrals to bush chapels, mosques, synagogues and temples, places of worship are captured through the eyes – and lens – of master photographer Robert Gray.

“We all have our cross to bear,” says Robert. “I just have more than most!”

A photographic lifetime honed his interest in architecture, history and religion.

“All these things collided to produce what has become the Divine Brisbane project. A photo of a church is just a photo of a church,” he says, “but show me the collection of every religiously significant building, and you can learn so much about that city.”

More than 80 of his pieces, which depict more than 560 religious sites, will be on display from 9–23 June 2023. 

Join Maud Street Photo Gallery on 9 June 2023 for the opening of Divine Brisbane.
