Old New World and an old problem

with 2 comments

Nice to see this writing about Old New World from South Australian photographer Gary Sauer-Thompson on his Thought Factory site.

Also interesting to read his comparison of critical writing about the visual arts and photography – or the lack thereof – in Wellington and Adelaide. The need for such writing and reviews was one of the things that came through in last year’s PhotoForum survey – I guess some things don’t change…

  1. Mary, has there been any response so far to the need for critical writing and reviews, which was one of the things that came through in last year’s PhotoForum survey?

    • Alas no. PhotoForum is on a very slow path to upgrade its website and content. Otherwise reviews of New Zealand photography are sometimes to be found in Eye Contact, Landfall Online and Art New Zealand or Art News.
