May 18, 2007: The second Daylesford Foto Biennale International Festival of Photography opens in the Hepburn Shire in Victoria on 2 June and runs to the beginning of July.
The Festival is a month long, bi-annual series of exhibitions, workshops, seminars and other photographic events designed to showcase the art of photography to a broader audience. It includes all genres of photography, embraces all ages, cultures and proficiencies, and provides a platform for the expression and promotion of photography. Organisers of the event will be offering a program of 120 events, including almost 90 photography exhibitions, plus seminars, workshops and affiliate functions and all the towns of the Shire are involved.
Exhibitions and workshops will be held in Creswick, Clunes, Trentham, Glenlyon and numerous other villages. The Biennale offers a chance to experience photography in a more measured and contemplative fashion than if the festival was sited in a major metropolis with all the competing pressures for the viewers attention. International photographers exhibiting include Charlie Waite [UK], Eduardo Gil [Argentina], Masaki Hirano [Japan], HueckelSerafin [Poland], Flavia Sollner [Norway]. Exhibitions by well-known Australian photographers include established names Matthew Sleeth, Rennie Ellis, David Callow, Andrew Chapman. Murray McKeich, and Jason Edwards. Local photographer, Kim Percy will be exhibiting ‘Under Water’, a photographic installation in Lake Daylesford.
Seminars cover a wide range of topics to interest the elite photographer as well as the amateur. The workshops cover disciplines from the cutting edge to the antique.
