The first Unsensored show, in 2007, had 24 analogue works by 12 local photographers. This year features around 60 images by 47 members!
Different formats will be on display: 35mm, medium format, 'plastic fantastic' Holga & Diana and of course, Polaroid. The gorgeous image used for our invites is by Sydney-based Polaroid queen, Kat White.
This will be my second group show this year with MSM - this time around I'm showing four original polaroids that have been float-mounted in a custom frame. They've been on the blog before, but here they are again...

I've been neglecting my blog of late . . . busy with daily 'non-creative' stuff while working on a new website and blog. It will be a while until it's up and running but I'm excited about the change: an updated web presence, a new business name and getting myself out there more creatively. I have lots of film coming back from the lab in the next couple of weeks, so I'll be showering the blog with posts and pictures.
As the hail belts down onto a frost-bitten Melbourne, I think back to the colourful brights of last night's launch of 'Destino Mexico', the new summer collection from Obus. A last minute invite from a friend was enough time to decide which Polaroid to grab plus a pack of newly-arrived 680.

Opening on August 20, the annual Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB) will showcase a large collection of works by local & international photographers. BIFB runs until September 18 so you'll have four weeks to drive, or take a lazy train trip, to Ballarat to see photographs from hundreds of artists. The Biennale's Core Program will feature 20+ artists and the Fringe Program covers about 80 events.
Three of my polaroid prints will be part of the Fringe Program in a group show by Melbourne Silver Mine (MSM) - a wonderful group of dedicated film shooters. Check out MSM's flickr stream... I recommend making yourself a cuppa beforehand - you could be browsing a while!
These polaroids were part of a small solo show I had in October, so they may look familiar. Since they were framed and ready to go, I decided to put them out in the public realm for a second time.
