Foto Biennale An international festival celebrating photography and the photographer... This year Ballarat will play host to the International Foto Biennale. The aim: to promote photography in all its forms, to educate, inspire and question, by presenting photography from the world to Australia and from Australia to the world. The only Australian exhibition/event to be a part of the Festival de la Luz (Festival of Light) a grouping of 26 festivals of photography from more than 20 countries worldwide that includes some of the most important photographic events in the world, the International Foto Biennale first kicked off in the arty Melbourne suburb of Daylesford in 2005. The festival moved to Ballarat in 2009 – and proved so popular that the 2011 event was also scheduled to take place in the Victorian township. With over two hundred artists and over seventy exhibitions and almost two hundred events, the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB) looks set to provide its strongest program yet. With fringe and mainstream events on offer, the Foto Biennale presents an array of themes and subjects from hope and longing to re- imagined streetscapes and regional landscapes. Photographic works on show included exhibits from renowned photographers such as Duffy (no ■ Untitled 6297 by Cyntha Karalla ■ Beeface by Judith Crispin feature Foto biennalle 17 017_Bpics6_bienalle.indd 17 29/08/11 3:20 PM
