The Rocks Discovery Museum in Sydney will present ‘Timeless’, an exhibition by Australian photographer Nelson Lau, between 14 May and 3 July.


The ‘Timeless’ photo series is inspired by the historical architecture of The Rocks as well as the films of Hong Kong film director, Wong Kar Wai, and his collaboration with Australian cinematographer, Christopher Doyle.

It uses The Rocks as a cinematic backdrop to tell the story of two star crossed lovers from parallel worlds. The series creates a fictional photo narrative with each image representing a key frame in the story, inviting the viewer to interpret the images to imagine the story behind them.

The majority of the images have been taken around The Rocks, with other featured locations including Town Hall, Museum Station and Camperdown Cemetery. The exhibition is multi-faceted using photographs, words and a digital display of cinemagraphs.

The Rocks Discovery Museum is located in Kendall Lane, with an entrance in Argyle Street. It is open between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm. For more information see The Rocks website  or phone (02) 9240 8500.
