* Through a lens!

July, 2020

Calling on all 14-25 year olds (or any you may know) who love to take photographs:

‘SHOOT the SOUTH’ will be a series of photo essays of Onkaparinga life in 2020 from a young person’s viewpoint.

The shoot will take place during the month of Shimmer (and be online all month) finishing with a major public event on the last weekend.

We plan to exhibit a collection of the photographs at next year’s Ballarat International Foto Biennale. 

Prior to Shimmer we will hold a series of documentary photography masterclasses focussing on documentary photography and photojournalism.

As well-known American photographer and member of Magnum Photos since 1954, Elliott Erwitt is quoted as saying: 

“You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organising them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” 

– Elliott Erwitt

The masterclasses will look at the history of photojournalism and involve a number of local well-known photojournalists.
