New imagery and latest news of things I’m up to…..
Its been simply ages since I did a blog post, my apologies. Since my last post I have completed a few new images that you may have seen on the “Latest Work” page. I have refrained from posting them on social media because some of them will be entries into this year’s Australian Institute of Professional Photography Awards and the advice is to keep them “secret”….so I’m trusting you.
I've been quite busy with the Loud & Luminous exhibition which opens on Thursday night. I am flying up to Sydney especially for the opening. The exhibition celebrates the work of 100 women photographers from around Australia. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone's prints hanging on the wall. I participated last year and it was spectacular, this year is twice as big. Everyone's image and image story is put together into a beautifully bound book at the end of the exhibition and is available for purchase and will be presented to the National Library of Australia for their collection.
This year at the symposium I was named one of the four recipients of a stipend to participate in an exhibition in Canberra to coincide with International Women's Day next year. I have 5 new (and exclusive) pieces to produce by then, so I've started exploring, in my journal at least, a plan. I've decided to work to a theme “Emotions” for the five pieces.
At the end of April, I’m off to Cradle Mountain for Fagus Week. Not only is this a photographers “retreat” week but a wonderful opportunity to photograph the changing of the colours of Tasmania’s only deciduous tree. It is spectacular and what a setting, the beautiful Cradle Mountain and surrounds. We will be indulged with a number of amazing presentations by some seriously good landscape photographers too. I will be giving two presentations throughout the week, a history lesson on composite photography and how it has developed including many of those artists who have inspired me and another on the deconstruction of one of my popular images “Spilt Milk” . Participants will get to see just how many photographs I shot to make this image and what it takes to get to the final art work.
I’m also off to New Zealand soon too, so watch for NZ inspired imagery….
