ccp’s inaugural instagram project

the staff at the Centre for Contemporary Photography have selected a dozen photographers they would like to work with and… gaaaaaah.. i’m one of them!

i was totally overwhelmed to have received an invitation to take part in the inaugural instagram project, sponsored by Leica, as part of CCP Salon 2014. Salon is an annual event at CCP that will take over the entire gallery.

we will be asked to respond to a series of 10 prompts and upload our responses to instagram at weekly intervals, in the lead up to the CCP Salon exhibition at Centre for Contemporary Photography in Fitzroy.

the photographs will be printed on fine art paper and displayed as a collection at CCP for the duration of CCP Salon 2014, which runs from friday 14 november to saturday 13 december and we will have the option of selling our work in the gallery during the exhibition.

representatives of Leica will select a winning image from this set of printed works and will award one artist a
Leica prize.

i’m both honoured and excited to have been asked to take part and to be amongst amazing talent. if you’re on instagram, you can take a peek at all images submitted here: #ccp_australia #ccpsalonIG. you, too, can join in on the weekly prompts… hash tag yours: #diyccpsalon

below are my responses for week beginning 22 august 2014. [images added every friday.]
