GOLD Photography

Photography plays an integral part in the GOLD creative development process. From the beginning of this project, young people have participated in photography workshops and were given access to cameras and equipment to develop these skills. Most had no prior experience in photography.

A significant body of work has been produced by both young people and experienced artists working with Big hART. The opportunity to photograph farming families in so many diverse locations has been a very rich and rewarding experience.

These images have been exhibited in various formats; as large mounted prints in the GOLD-CROP installation and on newsprint in the GOLD Lab & Exhibition.

GOLD-CROP Germination

These images were taken on the many trips to farming communities in 2006 and 2007. They were exhibitied as part of the GOLD Lab & Exhibition at the Griffith Regional Gallery in Oct 2007 and subsequently toured to various communities, conferences and forums.

The images were orginally printed on newsprint and collated as newspapers. Copies of the newspapers were sent to politicians, CEO's, heads of departments and community leaders around the country.
