Conor Ashleigh is a young Australian photographer, who travels all over the world, documenting the people, stories and landscapes he encounters. Timor-Leste: Moving Forward, Looking Back is an exhibition of Conor’s recent photographs from Timor-Leste, taken during visits to the island between 2009 and 2013. Conor’s photographs reflect numerous social issues and personal narratives, which expand and multiply with each visit to the island.

The exhibition at Art Est. Art Gallery and School in Leichhardt, in association with the Head On Photo Festival, will feature two series: the first is Coffee: From Tree to Cup, a digital photography study of the long and labour intensive process of coffee farming. The black and white medium format images of the second series, titled Timor Remember, have been framed as single images and in triptychs, encouraging the viewer to consider the development of the country and its architecture, history and culture.

Conor Ashleigh’s photographs are vehicles of communication, constructed to give the viewer an insight into the lives of others – in short, to help explain us to each other.
