Need to add a few caveats..... this is definitely a bargain sale, and it won't happen again for at least a decade, if ever. It depends whether my seventies turn out to be as prolific as my sixties were....... a couple of more caveats .... this is only for personal shoppers. Its genuine cash and carry - no holds, lay by or prior reservations. First come first served........ most prints are from editions of 5 + 2 artist proofs or 3 + 2 artist proofs.

Dead chuffed to have my exhibition 'Volt' accepted for exhibition in China at the Pingyao International Photo Festival [PIP'16] in September. This will be my third visit to PIP. My first was in 2013 as Director of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale for the annual face to face meeting of the Festival Directors of the Asia Pacific Photoforum. I returned in 2014 as curator for 'The Wizards of Oz' group exhibition featuring work by a selection of Australian photographers who had featured previously in the Core Program at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale. I also had a show 'Circumstance', in collaboration with Sandra Chen Weinstein which featured 'Legumes Morts - Twenty Carat Love' for which I was awarded a trophy as one of the best international shows in the festival.
PIP'16 runs from 19th Sept to 25th Sept 2016 in Pingyao Ancient City, Shanxi Province. It is China's biggest festival of photography.
For the past few years I have been one of around 200 jurors from around the world who critique the folios selected for review at Critical Mass, one of the largest and most prestigious online portfolio review programs run by the Photolucida organisation in Portland, Oregon, USA. Artists submit 10 image portfolios for review. The entries are pre-screened by a group of around 30 jurors who select the best 200 folios for the Critical Mass review. Each of these folios is then viewed, commented upon and scored by the 200 jurors. This process presents an excellent opportunity for a photographer to put their work in front of an international audience of top museum curators, gallerists, publishers, editors, and media producers from around the world.
This year I have been invited to be part of the pre-screening panel which is charged with the task of selecting the 200 folios that will go forward to be reviewed by the full complement of more than 200 jurors. I expect it will be a formidable task, but one that I look forward to with gusto. To find out more about Critical Mass, go to http://www.photolucida.org/critical-mass/entry-details/
I'm thrilled to have my Image 'Detritus - the Aeroplane' selected as the Jurors Choice for a juried exhibition 'ARTifact' at the Darkroom Gallery in Vermont, USA . The show opens July 21st 2016 at the Darkroom Gallery, Essex Junction , Vermont http://darkroomgallery.com/ and ends August 14th 2016. The artists reception is at 5:30 on August 5th. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it, but I expect it will be a hoot!
If you happen to be travelling in the Vic Central Highlands, keep your eye open for my open studio signboard on the highway between Trentham and Daylesford. When the sign is out, my home gallery is open between 10:00am and 4:00pm, generally at weekends. More than 70 framed images are on display, so stop by for a look and a chat.
