In Review In Paris
Every year a handful of festivals coordinate some of the leading institutions and publications around the world to meet with photographers and review their work. It costs serious money to participate in these sessions, and the level of critique can range from belligerent to brutal.
Ballarat International Foto Biennale 2013
This weekend one of Australia's biggest photography festivals opened in Ballarat, and there's much more going on than just photos on a wall. It celebrates careers, reflects on lifetimes, encourages creative process and critiques aspirations while leaving room for emerging innovation.

Learning to Love the Digital Darkroom
Not spending a little time processing your photos is the modern equivalent to collecting a bunch of prints from the chemist. If you’re not committing to process those RAW files then you’re only exploring half of their creative potential. The digital darkroom is where a world of possible interpretations can be brought to life.
Peter Henry Emerson
I believe that all photography is art. As with all arts the medium in which it is expressed changes the ability of the artist to express themselves. 120 years ago another photographer named Peter Henry Emerson struggled with the truth about art and photography, and overlooked the beauty of his own work.
Behind the Feathers
I started trying to write a thankyou list for all the people who helped make the "Feathers of the Dragon" exhibition possible, and was quickly overwhelmed by how connected the world really is. Both the world of galleries with their images on the wall, and the world of wild spaces where birds exist in harmony with the Himalayan mountains. Apologies in advance that it took 1800 words to say my THANKS.
Curation is not just about finding a balance, it’s about finding a story. Your story.
