Australia Now: Heavy Volume 1

The Heavy Collective has become an important player in the Australian photographic landscape through its online platform, which regularly features photographers mainly working in street and documentary photography, with often an edge and always a fierce passion.

Four years ago, edge and passion brought Jack Harris and Geordie Cargill to develop this truly collaborative online platform and, in 2015, drive them to publish their first photobook. Featuring the works of Lucas Foglia, Zhang Xiao, Tim Page, Stacy Kranitz, Mark Steinmetz, Bryan Schutmaat, Simon Davidson, Emmanuel Angelicas, Kate Peters and Sara Cwynar, Heavy Volume 1, despite being the size of a magazine, really stands as a book with beautiful reproductions, nice design and a reasonable text component - all of which highlight the work of the ten featured photographers.

Let’s hope that THC will receive as much support as their commitment to the medium and photographers is big and genuine so they can keep sharing their passion online and in-print.
