The photography collective, ˚South (Degree South), will launch its latest exhibition, “PEACE” at the Tanks Arts Centre  in Cairns, in Far North Queensland, on Friday 23rd November.   The photographs for this exhibition have been printed on Fujifilm Crystal Archive PD paper as part of Fujifilm’s sponsorship of the exhibition.

“PEACE”, which follows Degree South’s WAR exhibition and book, features photographs from the Collective’s members – Tim Page, Michael Coyne, Jack Picone, David Dare Parker, Ben Bohane, Stephen Dupont, and Ashley Gilbertson – who have selected photographs they believe reflect their notion of peace. The exhibition also includes photographs from Sean Flynn, who is listed as missing in action in Cambodia since 1970, and whose archive falls under the Degree South banner.

Word Play: Queens Rd Central Hong Kong – in full flight. Homogeneous mirror – glass monolithic monster phallic buildings. The bold hard exchange of commodities. More. High energy and frenzied. Pervading. Exciting but overwhelming. Brand victims walking. Want. Significant and insignificant. Sharks feeding. What’s next?

About Laos

Award-winning documentary photographer  Jack Picone will work in tandem with workshop partner Stephen Dupont, acclaimed photojournalist and filmmaker. Both Steve and Jack along with guest tutor Ed Giles renowned for his multimedia productions, will be there to critique and edit participants work one-on-one, and also take part in evening projections and discussions.

An introductory get-together will be held on the evening prior to the workshop’s formal start in Luang Prabang. Like any working documentary photographer, participants will be given an assignment brief to interpret as they wish. (The brief will be announced prior to the workshop to give participants time to research possible subjects before they arrive.)

The aim is to produce a documentary photo essay with a striking visual narrative, to be shown on the final evening of the workshop. Tutors will hold individual and group sessions to supervise and edit the assignments, and dialogue intensively on topics such as photographic composition, portraiture, basic camera techniques, how to research ideas and tell an original story, how to market a body of work, and how to hone your personal style. The workshop is very project based as opposed to technically driven.

The workshop’s schedule will be demanding but highly rewarding. Tutors and field assistants will be on hand constantly to help navigate any areas of difficulty and discuss all participants photographic concerns. Interpreters can also be arranged where necessary.

Traditional Photo Essay and Multimedia

During the workshops participants will have an option to produce a completed photo essay within documentary tradition or in a more contemporary context – a multimedia. In both cases, tutors will be on hand to guide you through the respective process.

Cost: US$2,500. Includes all workshop sessions. Workshop cost does not include travel costs to Laos and accommodation. A US$500 (non-refundable) deposit secures a place on the workshop.

Application: The workshop is strictly limited to 15 participants. This is one of our most popular workshops so book early to avoid disappointment.
