Explore the Jerrabomberra Wetlands as a series of landscapes shaped through the lives, past and present, of people, birds and other species. In this six-week workshop, proudly run in partnership with Jerrabomberra Wetlands, you will work with leading landscape photographer Wouter Van de Voorde, to develop a portfolio of images expressing your unique experience of the wetlands and work towards a group exhibition in the PhotoAccess Huw Davies Gallery.
Participants will be given the option of using either or both an analogue or digital camera and will have the freedom to then explore using the PhotoAccess Darkroom or Digital Suite, which included two flatbed scanners (to scan negatives) and two Mac desktop computers with Lightroom and Photoshop. Participants are also welcome and encouraged to use their own laptops.
Participants will work towards producing a portfolio of images and will have the opportunity to participate in a group exhibition in the PhotoAccess Huw Davies Gallery from 4 April – 4 May 2019.
This workshop is for beginners through to experienced analogue and or digital photographers, but we recommend that you are fairly confident with using your camera.
Wouter Van de Voorde grew up in Belgium and has a double master degrees in painting and printmaking from the Ghent Fine Arts Academy. In 2008 Wouter moved to Australia, where he now lives in Canberra with his wife Celia and son Felix. Of his work Wouter says “Moving from Belgium to Australia has made me into a photographer in exile. As a permanent tourist I seek refuge in my images, trying to create a sense of belonging for myself.”
