Ballarat PhotographyBiennale

Went up to Ballarat to see the exhibitions associated with the Biennale.
There were some stand out favourites.
Gypsy Pennefeather's hand painted photographs were very wonderful. Beautifully executed.

An interesting retrospective called Brian Duffy - the Man Who Shot the Sixties at the Ballarat Art Gallery. Brian Duffy, was a contemporary of David Bailey and Terence Donovan.

Duffy was one of the innovators of 'documentary' fashion photography, revolutionising fashion imagery and the fashion industry of the late 50s and 60s.
A documentary about Duffy complemented the works - some iconic images of the era including the famous David Bowie, and many other images of celebrities such as Michael Caine, the Beatles etc.
