Display: 'Stan Firm inna Inglan' at Tate Britain, London

November 2017: This was the best photography exhibition which wasn't an exhibition - because it was a "display" - that I saw on my recent trip to Europe. Why was it the best? Because this is what strong, insightful photography can do: it can capture life; it can document different cultures; and it can be a powerful agent for social change.I remember London in the 1970s.

Art Blart

Art Blart is a mainly photography based art blog that around since November 2009. The blog was created as a form of cultural memory, to record the passing of so many photography exhibitions, to make comment on them and to archive the postings for future reference and research.

There is an archive of all blog posts both international and Australian with lots of my own writing and research under BUNYAN (Writing).
