and somewhat unpredictable for our audience, and we take great pride in exposing the works of exciting new artists to festival goers.” According to Moorfoot there’s also plenty to inspire in the BIFB Fringe Program. “It provides a stage for photographers of all levels to present their talents to the broadest possible audience, and to show alongside of, and to learn from, and to be inspired by, some of the best photographic talent from around the world.” Moorfoot believes that photography and the role it plays in art, is central to the issues that inform and shape our society, as such he sees the BIFB as especially culturally significant and an opportunity for the larger community to see the impact of this art form. “The BIFB is the only internationally significant photographic event in regional Victoria, racking up an impressive set of statistics in just four festivals. BIFB’11 saw a total of 206 events staged at 73 venues throughout Ballarat, and with an audience of 63,400 through our seven major venues during the month-long festival.” Moorfoot is certain that the fifth BIFB will be just as successful, and hopes all photo enthusiasts will find their way to Ballarat come August. Ballarat International Foto Biennale takes place August 17-September 15. All Core Program exhibitions are free to attend and open seven days a week for the biennale’s month- long duration. ballaratfoto.org ■ “It provides a stage for photographers of all levels to present their talents to the broadest possible audience.” FestIval HIgHlIgHts Young Ho Kang, soutH Korea Young Ho Kang, ‘the dancing photographer’ known for his performance- like shooting style, is Seoul’s best-known fashion photographer.

Much of his work is focused on nature and our relationship with it, with titles such as ‘Earth Song’ and ‘Tree: A Journey’. About 100 of Cato’s photos are in the National Gallery of Victoria’s collection, with many more in other Australian and international collections. tItle BEST FRIENDS NO FEAR PHotograPHer SONIA MAcAk tItle PERFORMANScAPE cAPEBRIDGEWATER PHotograPHer VIkk ShAyNE tItle ThE BEAUTIFUL cONFUSION PHotograPHer RUSSELL JOSLIN tItle DIAMONDS ON My WINDSShIELD PHotograPHer AyALA GAzIT 25 feature Photo Festival 024_Bpics13_Bienalle.indd 25 31/05/13 3:22 PM
