For lovers of contemporary photography, the Internet can fast become a second home. Hijacked is a new exhibition at Sydney’s Australian Centre for Photography that gives you a damn good reason to get off that chair and head into a gallery to see new work by 44 of America and Australia’s most exciting emerging photo media artists. Embracing a sense of wanderlust, the show features photographers whose work is informed by the street and many have a particular bent for documenting subcultures, alternate lifestyles and urban landscapes. And if you can’t make it to Sydney, check out the book Hijacked: Volume 1 Australia and America, edited by Mark McPherson and Max Pam. It will be launched with accompanying shows in Fremantle, New York and Berlin. Hijacked is at the Australian Centre for Photography Paddington, Sydney, until July 19.
