Now Playing: nina simone - i put a spell on you
Topic: mixed bag
I'm back in Melbourne now, after 3.5 weeks of "holidays" at my parents' in Brisbane. I use quotation marks because I was still doing things like putting together submissions, taking photos (though barely any self-portraits), working on grant and award applications, researching, etc., etc., etc.
I also took the time to answer some questions about my art for Brian Sherwin at Myartspace which you can read here.
Whilst in Brisbane I visited the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art to see The China Project, Breaking Boundaries, Creative Generation and the Spencer Finch exhibition. I also dropped in to see the Josephine Ulrick & Win Schubert Photography Award 2009 at the Gold Coast City Art Gallery. I'll post more about The China Project soon: I was really impressed by a couple of the artists included in the exhibition.
As it was a year since the end of my 365 days project on 16 April, I set that as the last day I would have my book darkness & light available, but I am working on a couple of new books at the moment. All will be revealed soon enough.
In the meantime, as always, prints are available in my store.
If you're in Melbourne you can see one of my prints "in the flesh" until the 23rd of May in the Kodak Salon 2009 at the Centre for Contemporary Photography.
I'll also have a print in the Melbourne Silver Mine's annual exhibition of analogue photography, Unsensored09 opening on 7th August at the Collingwood gallery.
I hope you've all been behaving yourselves in my absence and I will be posting more regularly again now that I'm home.
