BCA News: Spring 2017
Two Special Programs from IPT Australia
In late February, Craig Wetjen (a graduate from Brooks Institute) gave a presentation on his latest book project, Men and their Sheds. The project was made possible with major support from Beyond Blue, an independent non-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety disorders and related mental disorders. Craig gave a very personal description of the people and places he travelled to photograph men and their relationship with their sheds. The book became the number one best seller in Australia and quickly went into a second print run. Find more information on Craig and his book at http://mensshedphotography.com.au.
In late March, Linnea Rundgren, a scientific photographer and installation artist from Sweden talked about her work and projects with various institutions, museums, music festivals and science conferences. Her images have been published in books, magazines and scientific papers, as well as featured in television productions and short films.
Her passion is science communication through her technical as well as artistic skills. She has mastered the art of electron microscopy and holography. She studied scientific photography at RMIT and graduated in 2009. Last year Linnea was asked to work on some images with Lennart Nilsson. She describes this a major highlight in her early career.
