Running from 4th July through to 31st October, 2012, Perth Centre for Photography will be hosting fortnightly workshops to a group of 15 local photomedia based artists who will be invited to show and discuss their work. On a Monthly basis where workshops and artist talks coincide, the guest artists will attend the workshop prompting discussion and allowing Table Talks members to gain invaluable feedback from industry professionals.
Guest lecturers will include:
- Dr Juha Tolonen (incredible urban landscape photographer)
- Claire Martin (Photojournalist - had a show 'Slab City' in foto freo 2 years ago which put her firmly on the map. She's now being published all around the world and working for some amazing agencies)
- Daniel King (Melbourne based portrait photographer. He's coming over to talk about indigenous culture and the arts)
- Bo Wong (kick ass perth photographer, just had a show in foto freo)
The workshops have been designed for artists to create the strongest body of work they can throughout the four month long series utilising feedback gained from peers and professional artists. The program will culminate in participating artists exhibiting selected images for a month long group exhibition in November at PCP.
The criteria for selection will focus on people who possess a sound understanding, enthusiasm and a commitment to the art form of photography; people who are willing to have a say to assist other artists develop their practice and reach their artistic goals; established, burgeoning and emerging photographers are also welcome to apply. We are strictly limited to 15 places.
