If not hosting any photography competion was a little bit suprising, as I was writing here, what about not hosting photography related events, in general?
Out of 80 something events, Sydney Festival doesn’t include a single one completely focused on photography: a photo exhibit, a photo talk, a photo ‘anything’.
When present, photography is more or less part of a background set-up of a musical or theatrical event, as in “Wreck” – where, by the way, you could admire some great shoots of wrecked cars, as the following one by Colin Somerset:
or this Saturday at “Tablatronics“, promising to feature stunning photography by Pete Longworth 🙂
A little bit of spotlight will be put on photography by “Notes for Walking” – a set of images, texts, video and audio fragments that follow the outlooker in his walk at the Middle Head Reserve near Mosman (but more on this on a separate post, cause it’s a really amazing experience!)
Unfortunately, list ends here, while hoping more for the next year!
