Toyota Altona: A Photographic Essay (2016)

at the substation

Sponsored by Toyota and presented at The Substation in Newport, this commission aims to honour the commitment and contribution of Toyota employees to the local and wider Australian community over the past 50 years. Three well-known Australian contemporary photographers, Jane Brown, multiple Award-winning Jean-Marc La-Roque and Walkley Award-winning Dave Tacon explore the daily working routines of employees and the industrial technology and processes at Toyota’s Altona manufacturing plant. This is a rare opportunity to glimpse into one of the West’s largest industrial sites through the eyes of exceptional photographers charged with capturing an era that is about to end.
