Aperture

The wee figure on stage is me during the recent Aperture Conference at Sydney’s International Conference Centre. It was an inspiring and affirming weekend. I was inspired both by my co-speakers:
ALEXIA SINCLAIR
MURRAY FREDERICKS
EUGENE TAN
KEN DUNCAN
GARY HEERY
KRYSTLE WRIGHT
MEGAN LEWIS

…and also the audience. The audience’s insightful questions was a highlight and a catalyst for further thinking surrounding what is philosophically and politically important concerning still photography. Glenn Mckimmin the brainchild behind Aperture is going to do it again. This time in 2019 stay tuned for destination and date.
