Statement

The Film Project- a group exhibition by Many Australian Photographers collective.

In an age of fast photography and image overload, 17 Australian Documentary photographer’s use traditional analogue techniques to photograph the most personal of subjects- the Portrait. With subjects that range from the loved to the infamous, photographers embraced the slow, uncertain nature of photographing with film to create a dynamic of trust only formed when a subject has to wait to see their image.

Each photo has been hand printed by the artist,  some whom had not been in a darkroom for a decade but all embraced the tactile process of silver gelatine printing. In a world where nothing is too hard to change in Photoshop, these images strive for an authenticity that says as much about the photographer as their subjects.

MAPgroup is a non-profit photographic collective committed to high quality, independent documentary image making. Their membership includes emerging and well-established photographers who are all passionate about the documentation of social and environmental issues in Australia.
