On Thursday 11 June we opened our next instalment of pop-up student show Photostart and brand new Social Gallery exhibition Tutor Show featuring Marco Bok, Aletheia Casey, Steven Cavanagh, Bill Green, Richard Glover, Glenn Lockitch, Tom Luscombe, Benjamin Stone-Herbert, Murray Vanderveer, Michael Waite & Fiona Wolf-Symeonides.
The night's proceedings were opened by ACP Director, Suzanne Buljan and prizes were awarded by C.R Kennedy Director, Clem Kennedy. It was a great night, made even more so by the generous support of Ilford and the fantastic team at C.R. Kennedy. This new partnership offers ACP a number of exciting opportunities and we are thankful to be working alongside such an inspiring group of people. Here are some kind words from our new partners:
"Ilford and C.R. Kennedy are proud to support the Australian Centre For Photography. When the ACP began Ilford was there and has been throughout its life now with both traditional and digital printing media and we look forward to helping the ACP grow and evolve, as has our own brand, to continue to be a relevant and engaging place for all photographers. In a time where we are making more pictures that ever before its important that places like the ACP act as a filter for us and provide the best of the best for us to enjoy what ever that may be."
Photostart is always a pleasure to exhibit and paired with selected work from our very talented tutors the evening was extra special. Thanks to all our students and tutors for making work that we love looking at!
Thanks to all our partners 4 Pines, Aesop and Ilford for their support, and congratulations to all the prize winners. See you all again for our next Photostart on Thursday 20 August 2015.
