Elsewhere online?

I have been interviewed by Gary over at Thought Factory, this is part one of a series of interviews Gary is undertaking. He is interviewing me and several photographers around Australia.

I was fortunate to have an extended discussion with Gary recently which was helped cement some ideas that I had not had the opportunity to contemplate before. I also created an album on flickr that demonstrates where I began with my photography.

Research & Links

Poking around online I found some interesting links.

The Photogrpaher’s Gallery in London has a faublous resource, called Viewpoints. Viewpoints offer a curated and eclectic set of perspectives inspired by the gallery’s programme and are designed to provoke new thinking around photography’s role in contemporary culture.

Some viewpoints are:-
Photography and Landscape a series of essays that examines photography’s role in defining and creating the Landscape genre. Unthinking Photography. Unthinking Photography is an online resource that explores photography’s increasingly automated, networked life. Unthinking Photography is a strand of The Photographers’ Gallery digital programme, an online platform for mapping and responding to photography’s role in contemporary culture.

Back in a few days once I’ve read them all.

Richard Misrach’s Borderlands

Three early influencers on my creative endeavours are, Richard Misrach, Robert Adams, and Frederick Sommer.

Misrach’s work still evokes amazing beauty while challenging ideas about our own humanity and politics. Richard Misrach’s books and Robert Adams books, are well represented in my library.
