Photo-Eye, the renowned US photobook store and blog recently featured The Middle of Somewhere as it’s book of the week with a lovely review by Daniel Boetker-Smith (Director of the Asia-Pacific Photobook Archive).
“I was asked by someone yesterday to describe Harris’ book in one sentence, I said without thinking: ‘it’s like looking at a Super-8 film in book form.’ This is a unique and special book.”
One of my images has been accepted for the BIFB COLLECTION 2014, an annual fundraiser for the Ballarat International Foto Biennale. For now, I can’t tell you what my image is, as all works are hung anonymously, and that would be letting the cat out of the bag, but all images in the show are for sale at the one price $125.
You can purchase a red dot at http://www.trybooking.com/92603 which also includes entry into the event at Gallery Eleven40, 1140 Malvern Road, Malvern, Victoria, starting at noon on Sunday August 31st. The event runs until around 4.00pm. All the details are at the website
Los Angeles’ Duncan Miller Gallery has featured one of my images on their innovative Your Daily Photograph, print collection sale. ‘Uma, bubble gum’ was selected by curator and photography commentator Alison Sieven-Taylor. Alison’s weekly blog Photojournalism Now has a wide international readership and her writing appears in a variety of leading photography magazines.
3 totally unrelated requests in recent weeks have had me searching through my archives. Boxes that should be better organised… but in that chaos there is the magic of surprises. I came across this photograph buried at the bottom of a box of old portfolio prints. Taken in 1994 it’s been a while… nice surprise!
