My friend Susan and I were at the night market at Carriageworks Eveleigh tonight. As the event kicked off we witnessed the smoking ceremony performed by the local Aboriginal elder. Here are some photos from the event.
Last year was busy and long on many counts. It was a year of learning. Most would argue this – every year or in fact every day we learn something new. Yes. Mostly. But some lessons ground and polarise you. Some leave an indelible mark and change your pathway. 2017 was one of those years of relearning myself.
Thank you Victorian Archives Gallery for selecting my work. I am honoured and humbled to the core. The Exhibition is open now until March 2018 before the body of work is archived in the PROV Archive Centre. I hope you get to see it in person.
Shannon is a fascinating photographer from Thibodaux, Louisiana. He loves the world of Leica. We spent about six days running around hilly terrain of North Vietnam. I had the Fujifilm X-Pro2 with the 23mm f/2 while Shannon sported is much-loved M9. I could tell Shannon has been using Leica for a long time.
The ancient Chinese got their ink from smoky oil lamps, brushing away deposited soot and mixing it into a paste that hardened into "stones". This black was pure, indelible and did not fade, and they fell in love with it. They used it not only for writing but for painting, which they saw as just another way to express their thoughts....
Hi Swarat, nice to meet you. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hello ! My Name is Swarat Ghosh. I am born and brought up in the coal capital of India i.e Dhanbad. At present, I am based out of Hyderabad and professionally working as a “Lead Visual Designer” in a reputed software company in Hyderabad.
ust like the kids you see in this photobook I was born in India too. It could have been me. It could have been my very own childhood of squalor, downright poverty and constant anguish for the next morsel of food. A safe place to sleep away from harms reach. All of this could have been my very own ordeal. Day after day.
Creatively speaking, when ego enters the mind of an artist, muse can no longer abide. For artists that create, the pureness of this state of being true to your art is next to none. To stay worthy and inspired in a world full of distractions and fake social hype - resetting the mind is a very cleansing process.
This body of work is a collection of moments from a project that took me across three island countries of New Zealand, Australia and Japan. It can also be viewed online at the contactsheet print shop. https://shop.contactsheet.com.au/collections/amit-karmakar
