The Last Jar of Rosehip Jam is a new exhibition of photographs by Otis Burian Hodge. The exhibition is comprised by both 35mm and medium format images that explore family relationships and memories, represented through the documentation of places, objects and repetitive habits. These habits can change over time as relationships change and develop and the places and sites that are documented change and evolve.

This is a project that has developed out of Hodge’s childhood journeys on the Hume Highway, between Sydney and his grandmother’s Albury home.

Otis Burian Hodge is a photographic artist and gallery curator based on Gadigal land. His practice involves both digital and analogue photography, with an interest in bookmaking. Burian Hodge explores the challenge of archiving specific feelings, memories and localities around him and translating them to a wider audience – sharing a moment with those who don’t share in it. He creates work that aims to be identifiable and relatable, yet pushes the audience to imagine beyond its frame and incorporate their own lived experiences.

Three photographs, with the two smaller ones side by side showing a chair - one with a elderly woman's legs proped up. The single photo on the right is an elder woman sitting on a leather couch with a series of old photos and paintings above her.
