Irreversibly Changing - Rikki-Paul Bunder

– posted by Sally

The universe is continuously, irreversibly changing . The arrow of time is unrelenting.
We are all on this journey and our decisions determine our individual experience.

The images within this series represent the irreversibly changing moments that make up this journey. They are continually happening, but most of us are completely unaware of them. We are all capable of incredible possibilities, it just comes down to the accumulation of our moments, experiences and decisions, every one of them.

Glimpses of the Kokoda Track

– posted by Sally

The Kokoda campaign looms large in the consciousness of the Australian nation. The series of battles fought between the Australian and Japanese forces along a narrow muddy strip of jungle across the impenetrable Owen Stanley Range were bloody and desperate for both sides. The help offered by local villagers to the Australian soldiers was an important factor in their eventual success.

Each year hundreds of mostly Australian hikers journey to this unforgiving place to walk the 96km long 'Kokoda Track' with the help of local village 'porters'. There they pay their respects to those who lost their lives in the campaign, they learn about the battles won and lost and usually they learn a bit more about themselves in the process. Photographed on two hikes along the track, these black and white images evoke the memories of those who have gone before; along a steep and at times difficult trail across ridges and rivers into the dark rainforest of Papua New Guinea. The photos in the book give us pause to reflect on the sacrifices given and hardships endured. LEST WE FORGET.

Half of the profit from sales of this book will be directed to "The Kokoda Track Foundation", an Australian philanthropic organisation which aims to repay the selfless help given to Australia during World War II by the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ of Papua New Guinea by working to improve the livelihoods of the people of PNG.

The Genesis Project. Head On Photo Festival

– posted by Sally

19 prominent photographers have delved into their archives to find the image that first made them think, “that’s it!” Each photographer will exhibit their seminal image together with an image for which they are renowned.

The exhibition aims to explore at what point photographers become photographers. What were the catalysts that transformed a child, teen or young adult into a pro photographer? What was the moment when through creating an image the child, teen or young adult realised "this is what I want to do - to make photographs, become a photographer and…to capture life’s moments”?

"In every artist's genesis there is a point - an image - that we can look back on with the realisation that the photograph taken was a defining moment of internal creative clarity. My first image that lay at the gateway of this perception was discovered on a journey through the ancient desert of South West America - in the windswept stones of Utah. A storm had laid a few tumbleweeds to rest in a hole in a ravine - a sacred place-  a burial site for Native American elders. When I took that image some thirty years ago - I knew I had creatively passed through a door of perception. I knew then the path I needed to follow internally and creatively as an artist. Photography has become for me a passport to understand the world around me. I am drawn to the edges - where light and dark, black and white, good and bad meet. They say every photograph taken eventually becomes a self portrait - regardless of where the camera is pointed. The most recent image of a traditional Cultural Mask Dance ritual in West Africa is a continued genesis of that early image. The journey continues ever deeper -  more refined as an image maker - into personal discovery, clarity of vision - and personal passion." Chris Rainier
