Crystal’s Team Pick: Stef Mitchell’s Stairwell Gallery

What are you doing on Thursday, August 19? I’m going to be at the opening night of Stef Mitchell’s photo gallery, and so if you live in Sydney then I recommend you drop by and check it out.

Stef’s an Autostraddle contributor whose photography you’ve probably seen in our features Tegan & Sara Do Sydney & The Cold War Kids at Williamsburg Music Hall. Absolut dig Stef’s work so much that they’ve decided to display it in their Stairwell Gallery until September 24.

Not long after wrapping up an internship with Annie Leibovitz, Stef’s about to hop a plane to New York City to work alongside  Terry Richardson. This girl’s going places, and as the invitation delicately points out, this gallery’s probably the last chance to catch a glimpse of work that’ll one day make for a heavy & expensive coffee table book.

Check out Stef’s work online, and then see it in person here:

The Absolute Stairwell Gallery
Thursday August 19, 6pm – 9pm
The Sugar Mill Stairwell, 33 Darlinghurst Road, Kings Cross

RSVPs are essential. Email stairwellgallery [at] dialoguepr [dot] com [dot] au to get your name on the door.

I hope to see some of you there!
