What to expect at Adelaide’s ‘Heritage SnAps’ photo exhibition
03 May 2022 2 min read
The beauty of our state’s heritage-listed places is on show in Adelaide Arcade. Here’s a preview.
There’s something about heritage sites that seems to capture the South Australian public’s imagination. And rightfully so…
To see this passion on display, you need look no further than the ‘Heritage SnAps 2021’ photo exhibition, currently being showcased in Adelaide Arcade in the CBD.
This special exhibition, on display for the month of May, features the top 20 photos from a competition run last year by the South Australian Heritage Council and Heritage South Australia.
The exhibition aims to celebrate and showcase the beauty of our state’s heritage-listed places, areas and shipwrecks.
You’ll see beautifully-framed shots of iconic locations like the Adelaide Town Hall, Mount Breckan, the Excelsior shipwreck and many others.
There was an amazing response to last year’s competition with submissions coming in from seasoned, professional photographers all the way through to school kids with an artistic eye.
It made it incredibly difficult for the SA Heritage Council to narrow the field of photos down to 20 for the exhibition.
There’s more than 2300 State Heritage Places and 17 State Heritage Areas and 780 shipwrecks here in SA each offering something special and unique and many of these qualities are captured in the works featured in this exhibition.
The Adelaide Arcade will be running its own competition so be sure to participate! Shoppers will be able to select their favourite photo from the Top 20 and enter their details in a draw to win a prize.
To whet your appetite, here’s a few of the photos on show:
If you want to see the rest, you’ll have to get down to Adelaide Arcade and check them out for yourself!
