Bound features contemporary and provocative photographs and video work by two up and coming young male Queensland artists. The series 'Everything at All' by Paul Mumme features himself as a suited protagonist questioning preconceived ideas of normality and function through both humorous and serious imagery. In Craig R Cole’s series, 'Within You Without You' he questions the validity of traditional portraiture, photographing friends, family and colleagues from his home town of Toowoomba. Cole’s photos reveal the intimacy and relationship between the two people featured. Both series show the subject succumbing willingly or unwillingly to the bounds of relationships, society, nature, culture or conditions.
