Tony-Visconti.jpgThere is something satisfyingly serendipitous about the similarities between photographers Harsent and Izzard. They first met more than 25 years ago and discovered they had been born on the same day in the same year - just six hours separating them. Well, that and 17,000 miles. A shared sensibility led to an immediate and long-standing friendship and a close working relationship that saw the pair founding The Pool Collective in 2008.

Now exhibiting together for the first time, these 'brothers from another mother' present Fifty/50, featuring photographs taken over the past 12 months. The harnessing of their individual talents provides people with a stunning and perfectly fitting celebration of a unique bond.

Industry guru and founder of advertising agency BMF, Warren Brown will be the special guest speaker for the opening night event, having worked closely with both photographers over the years.

Izzard and Harsent are the founders of The Pool Collective, a photographic agency based in Sydney. Throughout their careers they have both received high recognition of their work in the creative and commercial fields. Both artists have consistently been featured in the Luerzers Archive top 200 international photographers, have received numerous awards such as D&AD, Cannes, AWARD, and PDN Photo Annual.
