* Through a lens!
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.
If you are between 14-25 (or know someone who is) and love to take photographs, care about what’s happening around you and want to improve your photography, apply now to join the ‘Shoot the South’ team.
Applications must include your name, age, photographic interests and the topic you’d like to photograph as well as ten of your recent photographs.
Image files do not have to be large. JPEGs at 1000 pixels on the longest edge is adequate.
