photography awards

i am a bit overwhelmed at the moment … a few competitions have come to fruition and i have been lucky enough to be overwhelmed with good feedback for photography entered, a couple of awards and some published pieces  …

IMAGE – the photography magazine of the Australian Photographic Society, July/August edition is featuring a page of my haiga (images with haiku) and i have an article to write for the next edition due in August.  This magazine is beautifully printed in full gloss and available at your local library.  This came about thanks to the contemporary folio that i am a part of.

Here is one of the pieces (the rest will be uploaded to blumoon)

a depleted (haiga)

this one won the SMALL PRINT Tasmanian Photographic Federation prize for 2009

its called Heritage

new published pieces – Gean Tree Press

It is always exciting to receive news of published pieces.  The Gean Tree Press has published, in their June 2009 edition, 2 haiku, 3 tanka, 3 haiga of mine.  I have uploaded half of them to the blumoon site.  (Will upload the other half tomorrow).

Please do visit Gean Tree Press  and read all the wonderful poets featured in this, the first issue. – the link will also be up in my blogroll at my poetry site.

i am travelling to Bali in a couple of weeks and i am thinking of doing another ‘foundart series’ …. see the first one here .  And with that in mind, i have been playing these past couple of weeks …

looking forward to seeing where these end up (as art and in places) ! ….  >>> Gina

Tanka and photo

working on the visual aspect while the poem itself is workshopped – which do you think works best ?

camera club – july 2008

this one got a place in ‘altered reality’ EDI (electronic digital image)

interestingly the only changes to ‘reality’ were curves, levels and inversions.

as a straight out photo its quite ordinary – it comes up beautifully with alteration and has been used as the basis for an haiga.

haiga – the form (art and visual)

exploring the form and enjoying tremendously … a few zooming along at present …
