Head On Photography Festival May 18, 2010

Posted by bohdan.warchomij in : Australian photographers, Head On, Photography Festivals , add a comment

Head On Portrait Prize

http://headon.com.au

Head On is the nation’s major innovative showcase for Australian portrait photography, reflecting a vibrant, diverse cross-section of new and traditional photographic practices.

The show’s main selection criteria are the quality and impact of the image, rather than the celebrity of the photographer or subject. As a result Head On is regarded by the arts community and reviewers as the most critically important photographic portrait prize in the country.

This year’s judges were National Gallery of Victoria senior curator – photography Dr Isobel Crombie, prize-winning photographer Anthony Browell, Australian agent for international photo agency Vu Isabelle Rouvillois and Head On Curator, Moshe Rosenzveig.

The exhibition includes prints by the 40 finalists and further 215 images by the short listed photographers presented as a slideshow.

Oculi present TERRA AUSTRALIS INCOGNITA (A Photographic Survey) at Manly Art Gallery & Museum

Exhibition Open: 16 April – 16 June

Oculi have a great reputation internationally and have just released their first book at Foto Freo. The Manley Art Gallery is hosting their exhibition of contemporary Australian documentary photography
exploring Australian identity and place.

Featuring Photographers: Donna Bailey, James Brickwood, Tamara Dean,
Jesse Marlow, Nick Moir, Jeremy Piper, Andrew Quilty, Dean Sewel, Steven
Siewery and Tamara Voninski.

Gallery:
Manly Art Gallery & Museum
West Esplanade Reserve
Manly NSW 2095

From Judith’s blog on the Head On site:

Another standout of the festival is the Oculi exhibition at the Manly Art Gallery. Individually, any of these photographers work would fill a gallery and in fact, Tamara Dean and Dean Sewell are both exhibiting at Charles Hewitt Gallery over the next few months – Dean’s show is part of the HeadOn festival – but collectively, this exhibition is a tour de force.
“  Oculi photographers document Australian work, Australian light, Australian life, in a way that straddles art and documentary. Each member’s work is individual and strong. Every time I see Tamara Dean’s ‘Motherhood ‘ series I wonder if it’s my favourite series of all time. Her work is timeless in its beautiful and delicate observation, but then there’s Steven Siewert’s pigeon fanciers and Best in Show essays: loving explorations of enthusiasts, and Nick Moir’s cataclysmic weather hunting and the fascinating lurid flash or gentle sunlight that exposes Donna Bailey’s community and James Brickwood’s schoolies taking me crashing back to embarrassing moments and Jessie Marlow’s determined and joyful NT AFL players and Jeremy Piper’s statuesque boat salvage workers and the devastation Dean Sewell captures in that stark, bald, firebaked kangaroo and Andrew Quilty’s terrifying Cronulla rioters or his breathtakingly beautiful night-time in Lorne and Tamara Voninski’s elegantly captured city moment that Head On is fortunate to carry as the signature image on its program and so very much more. Phew!  See it, and while you’re there, buy a copy of their recently published 10 year retrospective, available at the Gallery main desk.”

Cut Out by Marnya Rothe

Opening Wednesday 26 May 6.30 – 8.30pm
Exhibition dates: 26 May – 12 June, 2010
Showing at two venues (see below)

Fresh from Australia’s most significant photography festival, FotoFreo 2010, comes Marnya Rothe’s surrealist fashion photography exhibition, Cut Out.

Come to Sun Studios for opening drinks, retro tunes, and to view this darkly mischievous collection of photos and installations on Wed 26th at 6:30pm.

Characterised by an overarching frolicsome take on a cross-section of feminism, fashion photography and the male gaze, the works in this exhibition take inspiration from the photographic and ideological styles of Guy Bourdin, Helmut Newton and the Varga girls.

Rothe’s work is characterised by a strong emphasis on the narrative, the tensions of which she exploits through a dialectical juxtaposing of sexualised, fashion photographs of women, ironically informed by feminist perspectives themselves.

Marnya’s work has been likened to Guy Bourdin’s use of flamboyant colour, erotic connotations, and awkwardly posed models. She uses these characteristics however, in a humorous and controversial manner, with an intension to inspire elements of feminist thought within its viewer.

The women in the photographs are literally 2D objects; cut-outs from her original photographs rephotographed (not photoshopped). These vintage clad cut-outs are then trapped into a domestic diorama thus creating a dialogue between the surrounding objects and the subject. The women either surrender to the role given to them by the object, or sexually overpower them. These dioramas are also displayed as installations in the exhibition.

Rothe’s sense of vintage fashion is evident in the photographs, but perhaps for the viewer the relationship between the woman and the object is what entrances.

“In Marnya Rothe’s strongest photos the feminine ‘goddess’ plays her role with a double edge that helps us reexamine feminist theory and women’s sexuality”. (Bohdan Warchomij, Metaphor Images)

What: Cut Out by Marnya Rothe
Venue: Sun Studios Australia 42 Maddox St Alexandria
When: Opening Night Drinks 26th May 6:30pm
Open Daily until 12th June

2010 has been a great year for the photograph in book form at Foto Freo.  Max Pam’s Atlas Chronicles launched prior to the festival opening and then in rapid succession Brad Rimmer launched Silence at the Fremantle Prison, Oculi, the respected Australian East Coast photo collective launched its massive first tome, and Degree South launched WAR, an impressively seminal work at Central Gallery in Perth. Gianni Frinzi from T & G Publishing is to be commended for his huge contribution to Australian photography.

Degree South  formed in 2006 at Foto Freo as a cooperative that has an established archive that cover’s Australia’s involvement in the world’s conflicts since Vietnam in the 60′s. Individually Tim Page, David Dare Parker, Ben Bohane, Stephen Dupont, Jack Picone, Michael Coyne, Ashley Gilbertson, and Sean Flynn have strong reputations that have been hammered out in the world’s conflicts. Collectively those reputations are significantly enhanced. The book is a collector’s item and their show is not to be missed.

Narelle Autio Maritime Museum Foto Freo : The Summer of Us”

Launch at the Fremantle Arts Centre Photo Bohdan Warchomij

Foto Freo has launched in galleries throughout Fremantle, Perth and Rottnest. The work of artists such as Narelle Autio, Carrie Levy, Pat Brassington at the Maritime Museum, Philip Blenkinsop, Dean Sewell, Glenn Campbell, Martine Perret and the three visiting Timorese photographers  Zesopol Carlito Caminha, Bernardino Soares, and Antoniho Bernardino at the Moore’s Building is inspirational and humbling and a wonderful  experience for any  photographer. Jean Chung’s powerful work Tears in the Congo and Claire Martin’s Slab City and Vivien Dalles A Journey of Exile add so much to  the experience.

Amy Stein’s ‘Stranded’ and Sohrab Hura’s  ‘Life is Elsewhere’ at the Perth Centre for Photography are not to be missed. There are many jewels at the fringe of the Festival. Seng Mah’s Sons of Ganga at the Cracked Monkey in Mt Lawley gives us a mature insight into life in Varanasi, India.

Photojournalist Students to Bangladesh January 17, 2010

Posted by bohdan.warchomij in : Australian photographers, Bangladesh, Edith Cowan University, Education, Photo Media, Photography Festivals, Photojournalism , add a comment

Bangladesh photography has been in the news recently. The growth of Chobi Mela, a festival of photography in Asia, images of work from Bangladeshi photographers in Andy Levin’s 100 Eyes Magazine, the winning portfolio Living Stone by Bangladeshi photographer Khaled Hasan that was announced as the Centre For Documentary Photography Award Winner have opened up our eyes to the talent and potential within Bangladesh.

The growing connection between the Edith Cowan University Photomedia Faculty and Pathshala, the South East Institute of Photography is an important  link between Austalian and Bangladeshi tertiary institutions and exemplifies the growth of photography in both countries.

Following the success of the initial first link project between the Edith Cowan University Photomedia Faculty and the Pathshala: South East Asian Institute of Photography for the 2008 Summer School, this year, fourteen top ranking ECU Photomedia students are going to Dhaka in Bangladesh from 7 January to 8 February. The ECU students will attend classes and conduct in-field work in collaboration with Pathshala students. New York based Picture Editor Tina Ahrens will supervise the first week of learning before students are sent out to cover their individual projects. The project culminates with an exhibition at the Drik Gallery in Dhaka and there will be another in Perth in April at Spectrum Gallery. At this stage it looks that the focus topic will be the rivers of Bangladesh.

FotoFreo 2010 Programme Launch Update

Eugen Richards The Blue Room

Eugene Richards The Blue Room

Eugene Richards was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, a neighborhood of Boston. After graduating from Northeastern University with a degree in English and journalism, he studied photography with Minor White at MIT. In 1968 he became a health care advocate in eastern Arkansas. Two years later, he helped found a social service organization and a community newspaper, Many Voices, that reported on black political action and the Ku Klux Klan. After publication of his first two books, Few Comforts or Surprises: The Arkansas Delta (1973) and Dorchester Days (self-published in 1978), Richards was invited to become a nominee at Magnum. He was a member until he departed in 1995, returned to the cooperative in 2002, and departed for a second time in 2005.

On Wednesday evening the 4th of November FotoFreo launched the Festival Programme for FotoFreo 2010: The City of Fremantle Festival of Photography. The event attracted over 200 guests to hear what is in store next year and see a pop-up exhibition giving a preview of the 100+ Fringe photographers who will show across Fremantle and Perth. Programme Manager June Moorhouse said, “There’s a lot to look forward to in FotoFreo 2010! We’re gathering in Fremantle over 40 of Australia’s and the world’s leading photographers and photography commentators for an event that will give you a chance to look at great work, debate the issues and learn from the photographers. “From the big names like Eugene Richards and Pat Brassington, to a host of exciting young international artists and curators, we’ve sought out those who are influencing photography today to come and share their skill with us for a packed five days at the start of the festival next March.


“An Australian first, and an exciting new dimension to the festival, are three five-day workshops being offered by Magnum Photos led by three world-class photographers including Trent Parke.Ms Moorhouse went on to outline the 2010 speakers’ program Incite: stirring discussion about photography, with four major forums looking at the changing ways that photographers distributing their bodies of work. Online Photography, Book Publishing, Journals and Do-It-Yourself Culture will explore in some depth the virtues and vagaries of various forms of photographic self expression.


FotoFreo founder and Chair, Bob Hewitt acknowledged the significant increase in support from the City of Fremantle and new funding from EventsCorp through the ACE scheme. He highlighted the steady growth in the Festival and its spread to new areas including Rottnest Island which will host a range of exhibitions.
