In a world where everything takes a photograph, what is the value of professional portraiture? Is it just an antiquated art or a dynamic process that can survive as a contemporary art form? Heery’s World follows Gary Heery, a celebrated Australian photographer. His photographic quests take us to the Bandidos clubhouse and a gay S&M parlour, amongst others. Driven by his wild behaviour and uncensored approach towards his subjects, the experience is unique, entertaining, and transformational. In its essence, Heery’s World evokes a deep sense of appreciation for the creative journey and the marginalised characters of our society where process and the creative experience often eclipses the impact of the image.
