DAVID ALAN HARVEY INTERVIEW 2015

burn grab Arles interviewDuring Arles Photo Festival in the south of France, i found myself sitting in a nice little side-walk cafe, drinking a cold beer and chatting with Magnum‘s David Alan Harvey. We were talking photography and he interviewed me about ‘The Middle of Somewhere‘ for Burn magazine.  David has been a long time supporter of my work and has given me sage advice when i’ve needed it most. It was a nice way to summarise my long-term project and a great honour.

Recent features in Australia…

Recently i’ve been featured in two noteworthy Australian publications. Capture Magazine and Alasdair Foster’s Cultural Development Consulting website.

.

ARTIST OF THE MONTH

.

Alasdair Foster is an international curator and consultant. He has 20 years’ experience heading national arts institutions in Europe and Australia such as the Australian Center for Photography (1998 – 2011). On Alasdair’s website Cultural Development Consulting he features a different artist every month. I was very humbled by his appraisal of my work.

.

Here’s a few lines from Alasdair’s feature.

“We stand on the cusp of change. The metropolitan, cosmopolitan marketplace of authorised, commoditised art is beginning to seem like yesterday and, sensing a new, subtler and more highly individuated language of creative communication ahead, we look towards an uncertain tomorrow. Sam Harris may well be there to greet us when we arrive.”
