Welcome to April’s Photojournalism Now. In this blog post I feature three very different and exciting new photobooks that have recently been released. I’ve also re-posted a review I wrote on Peter Mitchell’s Early Sunday Morning, a truly wonderful narrative on Leeds which came out in 2020. Mitchell’s long term study of this northern England town continues with the imminent release of his new book Nothing Lasts Forever. The book is the first retrospective monograph of Mitchell’s work and coincides with a major exhibition at Leeds Art Gallery which opened this week and is on until 6 Oc ..read more

Wow, it’s nearly the end of 2023 and what a year! Thanks to all my subscribers and readers for your continued support especially this year when I have been posting less as I finished my PhD.

For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, spring is here, and the air is filled with the fragrance of blossoms, in particular magnolias and jasmine.

Ballarat International Foto Biennale 2023 This year marks the tenth iteration of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB) which b ..read more

In the past month I’ve spent time in Tasmania working on the final draft of my PhD – the end is near. I have a deep affinity with this Australian state, its majestic natural beauty, the freshest of air and friendly locals. While I was there I met some of the protestors who are fighting to save the takayna/Tarkine forest, one of the true natural wonders of the world. Earlier this year I’d been in the forest and stayed at Corinna Wilderness, a truly uplifting and life affirming experience. In reflecting on being back in ‘Tassie,’ I remembered I’d written an article on Tasmanian photographer and ..read more

This week on Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up the Auckland Festival of Photography celebrates its 20th anniversary with the theme of resistance [ātete]. Event Auckland Festival of Photography It is remarkable that the Auckland Festival of Photography (AFP) has been around for two decades, a feat to be celebrated given the tenuous nature of arts events whose very existence is reliant on inconsistent funding from various sources and the whims of audiences. Julia Durkin the festival’s founder and CEO as been at the helm for the duration, and there is no sign that her energy and enthusiasm for ..read more
