Finding the Juice

Mark Rogers’ career began with an extended period of itinerant work and travel around Australia and Europe. He picked fruit, took jobs on building sites and in mines and worked on prawnboats and in canefields. Along the way he developed an interest in the dramatic arts in general and acting in particular.

Eye for a scene

Sometimes things don’t work out quite the way you plan. Originally I’d intended to interview Geoffrey Simpson about his work as a cinematographer, with the idea of exploring the intersection between his craft and the art of photographic composition. Although he is an extremely busy fellow, we managed to conduct the interview. Unfortunately, it turned out to be difficult to organise the high resolution images from his films we’d need for publication in the magazine. Ownership and copyright issues that arise from such a highly collaborative art form, it seems, are extremely complex.

A Little Uneasy

Melbourne’s Morganna Magee is too busy documenting happenings on her doorstep to worry about global warnings that photojournalism is going out of fashion.

Aglow: The photography of Adam Bruzzone

Adam Bruzzone loves the vigorous light and strong colours of his native South Australia but, thanks perhaps in part to his heritage, he is equally passionate about the sublime and dramatic landscapes he’s come to know on visits to Italy.

Across The Line

The prostitutes in First Deadly Sin, Gerhard Joren’s photographic survey of the sex industry, are depicted neither as victims, nor heroes, nor villains. They are, however, depicted honestly.
