2020 Nikon-Walkley Press Photography
Focal Point Gallery in Geelong has secured the Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition for the third consecutive year. The winning images in the 2020 competition reflect a year like no other when the catastrophic bushfires that marred the Australian landscape were followed by a global pandemic. Racial inequality and human rights protests made headlines too, as did acts of heroism and moments of unspeakable tragedy. Through it all, Australian photojournalists were on the frontlines.
Until May 30
Focal Point Gallery 46 Douro St, North Geelong (Wed to Sun).
Picturing Self & Others – Molly Roberts
“There is a long and lovely history of portraiture, including self-portraiture, dating to the very dawn of photography,” says Molly Roberts, an award winning visuals editor, independent curator and documentarian who has worked with the Washington Post Magazine, USA Weekend, Smithsonian and National Geographic.
“In this workshop we will view and discuss photographing ourselves and others…Emerging from our recent experiences of self isolation, we will bring new realizations to the practice of the portrait.”
The workshop features one on one feedback and participants can use any photographic medium.
