Last night was the Melbourne edition of the 2010 Walkley Slide Night, an annual celebration of Australian press photography. It’s a chance for photographers to show off the in-depth projects that don’t always make it into print, to an audience of peers and photo-lovers. 17 collections of images were selected for presentation last night including some of my Indonesian Earthquake series.
I liked Alex Ellinghausen’s Going to the Ball series and Lisa Wiltse’s The Mennonites of Menitoba is also lovely. Winner of “Best in Show” on the night was Matthew Lynn for The Correction Centre.
In fact, all of the work is worthy of a look and you can find the Sydney submissions here (and I assume the Melbourne ones are about to go online also…) – http://www.walkleys.com/photography-events or http://vimeo.com/meaa/videos.
