Sarah Anderson exhibits at the BIFF 2011 read on to find out more…..

– posted by Kerry

I’m a Melbourne based emerging photographer. I love to photograph industry and architecture and the odd cow. I love traveling to new places and seeing new things. I also love how much you learn along the way.

These images are part of a long running personal project shot in various continents started when I made a road trip following the southern coast line up to Margaret River and back to Melbourne. I went with 2 other artists and we just took photos and made films for a month. I noticed lots of lichen as we were hiking around and found it varied so widely in colour, texture and shape, almost like mini cities on the rocks. It's almost like art from nature. And the more places I visited the more I saw.
As I have been on hikes I add to the collection and love to shoot different colors and shapes; and maybe get a little too excited when I see some that is nothing like any I have seen before.

I feel like you can get lost looking at it, yet it can go almost unnoticed as you walk by if you don't look out for it.

The BIFF is on for the next month and well worth a visit.
Check out Sarah's work at the Railway yards in Creswick.

Photographer Bill Beath at the BIFF 2011.

– posted by Sally

On the Monday after the opening of the Bienalle in Ballarat Kerry and I took off to see Sarah Andersons exhibition. We knew we had to get there before 4pm, so with time against us as I had been reviewing portfolios for the past 2 days, we flew in to the town of Creswick.

We arrived at the Creswick  Woolen Mills to discover other photographers exhibiting here but alas not Sarah, she was at the Railway Station DOH!!.

Fortuitously , however, we went in to where we had arrived and met Don Oconnor Australia's last Timber Bender. What a find of a place and a lovely bloke.

When we walked thru we discovered there were a few photographers showing their work, one being Bill Beath. Bill is part of a group exhibition called "Photography and Beyond"- he said he was the beyond part !!

Bill calls himself the mathematical photographer, maths not being my strong point, I possibly wouldn't have chosen this body of work to view as the title sounds rather grim.

BUT I fell in love with his work and the colours , so much so I bought a piece.

Bill kindly allowed me to take my piece home with me ( I dont think he was meant to ), it was the only one of its kind along with the fact that he was influenced by my incredible powers of persuasion. Thanks Bill.

Following this side adventure, we then headed for the railway station to see Sarahs work, to find out it wasnt open on Mondays  aaagghh!! next time.

If you are going up to the Bienalle it is well worth looking at the programme of what is on outside Ballarat as well. There are many towns like Creswick showing work and the drive and scenery is beautiful to get to these places.

"Photography and Beyond" is showing at Creswick Woolen Mill Precinct

18 Railway Parade Creswick, as part of the 2011 BIFF.

Tobias Titz and Martumili Artists - Photographic Encounters between Germany and Australia.

– posted by Kerry

Please join us for a reading of acclaimed author Zafer Senocak discussing the "German Dream" and  the official opening of my exhibition "Martumili Artists - Photographic Encounters between Germany and Australia" on Monday, 16 May 6.30pm -8.30pm at the Goethe Institut Sydney,  90 Ocean Street,  Woollahra.

Monday, 16 May, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Goethe-Institut Australien, Sydney
Free entry 
RSVP recommended: or +61 2 83568310

Tobias Titz and Martumili Artists
Melbourne based German photographer Tobias Titz has collaborated with Martumili Artists from Western Australia to create a unique body of work – exploring aesthetic, ethical and cultural dimensions of photography.

Tobias traveled to the remote community of Parngurr in the Great Sandy Desert where Martumili Artists shared the image-making process by scratching images of their country in the wet emulsion of the Polaroid film.

The result is more than photography, it is a photographic investigation of culture and representation. The Martumili Artists are not only part of the work, they have been given a voice in relation to their representation.

The show is part of the Head On Photo Festival in Sydney.


URGENT message to Photographers from NEW NORTH re: LIFE Benefit.

– posted by Sally


Dear photographers,
I don't step away from telling you I'm concerned that participation in the LIFE Benefit Exhibition and Print Swap for Andrew is moving along at a snail's pace.
I'm aware that on May 22 there is to be a major fundraiser - organised by the Chapmans - at MGA, to raise money for the Austin Hospital's Liver Transplant Unit - no doubt you'll be there, as will we.
However, the LIFE Benefit is raising money for Andrew himself.  It's clear that, although he's progressing well in his recovery after his transplant, it's going to be a long road back to full power for him and it's unlikely that he'll be able to work much for the rest of this year.  In view of that, the LIFE Benefit was mooted to help him work on a future photographic project without having to wonder where the money was coming from.
We know that Andrew's reluctant to accept funds on his own behalf and so have agreed that half the money we raise should go to the Austin.
I really would like to see a great exhibition up on the walls here at NewNorth from 29 May to 18 June - of images that we can sell from to raise additional funds - culminating in an exciting Print Swap afternoon on 19 June in the Gallery.  With your participation the show will be a special opportunity for people to come and see work by some of Australia's best - all together in one place - AND be able to purchase it for a good cause!
Andrew has worked tirelessly for years to promote photography and camaraderie among photographers hereabouts;  he's a great inspiration and mentor to so many people.  We really did nearly lose him and this is our chance to rejoice in the fact that he's still with us and will be able to get back to photography - his life's work and passion.  Who else would be master-minding the publication of a new book from his hospital bed? .....not to mention sending a photographer off to WA  to complete the shooting of the project!!
Please join us in making LIFE a great and successful event!
cheers to you all,

Jim McFarlane update.

– posted by Kerry

Jim's work shot last year in Gaza has been picked up by several international galleries, who will be showing the work over the next 12 months.

Dates have been set for Sultan Gallery, Kuwait 8th-17th March, Bahrain National Museum, Bahrain 1st-10th May, Salwa Zeidan Gallery, Abu Dhabi 25th May-3rd Jun and Bait Muzna Gallery Muscat, Oman 4th-14th October.

Jim has just let us know there has been an update with the Gaza exhibitions.

The planned exhibition in Bahrain which was booked from the 1st-10th May has unfortunately been cancelled due to the political unrest there
and the severity in which the government has come down on the protesters. It's a real disappointment for Jim as he was planning to exhibit in the Bahrain National Museum.

As an organisation that holds social and political justice central to Jim's values, he cannot be seen as being sympathetic with the actions of the government.
We hope that the unrest will end very soon allowing Jim the opportunity to resume the planned exhibition.

In the mean time the exhibition at the Sultan Gallery in Kuwait City went very well resulting in sales of 3 out of the 4 paintings submitted by Dia Azzawi (a fellow artist in the group), with an average selling price 5000.00 pounds,  and one of Jim's prints selling for 2500.00 pounds all of which will be going to Save the Children.

There are still exhibitions at the Salwa Zeidan Gallery in Abu Dhabi from 25th May-3rd Jun and The Bait Muzna Gallery in Muscat, Oman from 4th-14th October.
At the moment discussions are taking place with galleries in Beirut, Barcelona and Berlin.

In the current climate, where regimes are collapsing throughout the Middle East leaving dislocated people in its wake, this work is becoming even more topical.

We have posted a few images from his show.
