I was fortunate enough today to get a reminder email about the events of fotofreo 2010. Tonight was a talk from Bruno Barbey from Magnum Photos. An incredible photographer who's still going strong, producing relevant and moving images more after more than 4 decades in the game.
I always find it interesting to see how some of the worlds most accomplished photographers tackle issues that still trouble me...such as to ask or not to ask permission to take a photograph of a subject. Bruno's philosophy: Take picture first ask permission later. Afterall how else do you get a natural shot?
For those in Perth, the next month offers a visual feast of photography exhibitions, workshops, talks and discussion groups and i hope to see as much as i can over the next few weeks. Make an effort to see what you can because some world class photographers are here to inspire us from half the world away.
See you in Freo!
