PhotoWorld China


Australian Photographers Showcased in China Through 2013

Alasdair Foster has been commissioned to write 12 monthly features for the celebrated Chinese art-photo magazine PhotoWorld. Spanning some 12-16 pages, each article and portfolio will focus on the work of a contemporary Australian photomedia artist, with a special emphasis on the diversity of approach and visual language at play in our country.

The series launched in January with the work of the respected Victorian artist Polixeni Papapetrou whose fantastical tableaux, created with her children Olympia and Solomon, have established a significant international reputation for the artist and her work.

This month the spotlights falls on Sam Harris, whose personal journey has taken him from the glamour of London Britpop to rural Western Australia where he has created a delicately poetic image-journal of family life. The March edition will feature the work of Sydney-based artist and performer Garth Knight, whose works combine philosophy and bondage to meditate upon ancient mythology, contemporary ecology and the complex psychology of submission.
