Last night was the opening of The Ballarat International Foto Biennale – a month-long festival of photography which is held every two years in my new home town of Ballarat.
Over 400 Ballafornian’s gathered on a typically frosty night in the wonderful Mining Exchange.
The aim of the festival is to celebrate Australian photographers and Australian photography on the world stage.After the highly successful 2009 and 2011 Ballarat International Foto Biennales and the Daylesford Foto Biennales of 2005 and 2007 the BIFB is expanding into a truly global event.
The Ballarat International Foto Bienale BIFB’13 will run from Saturday August 17th 2013 to Sunday September 15th 2013.
