not the singer) and Jan Saudek. Comments Esther Gyorki from BIFB, “The Ballarat International Foto Biennale is one of the biggest photography festivals in Australia and the only photography festival of its kind in Victoria therefore it is unparalleled in what it provides to both the Victorian and Australian communities. Alongside showing world class exhibitions by Australian and international artists, BIFB also has many special events including master classes and workshops with many renowned Australian and international photographers, portfolio reviews with gallery directors, curators, photographers, journalists and academics as well as seminars, a large format weekend and a print swap.” Gyorki believes that the BIFB plays an important role in showcasing the works of Australian photographers. “Our vision is to celebrate Australian photographers and Australian photography on the world stage. Photography is the premier art medium of the 21st century. Our aim is to educate, inspire and question by presenting photography from the world to Australia and from Australia to the world.” With the BIFB taking almost two years to curate, the festival is a mammoth event. Gyorki says that visitors can expect “exciting and stimulating exhibitions and events – with all core programs (and many fringe programs) within five minutes walk of one another.” She hopes that upon seeing the many works on offer, that photographers will find inspiration for new creations and be encouraged by “the breadth and strength of Australian works on show”. n “Our visiOn is tO celebrate australian phOtOgraphers and australian phOtOgraphy On the wOrld stage. phOtOgraphy is the premier art medium Of the 21st century” For more information on the Ballarat International Foto Biennale visit ballaratfoto.org ■ Pan by Colin Page ■ Little Flagman #10 by Maleonn feature foto biennalle 18 017_Bpics6_bienalle.indd 18 31/08/11 11:20 AM
