Unless You Will

conference

Look out for a new conference coming up at RMIT about documentary photography. Called Unless You Will, it will be “a weekend of conversations, inspiration and insights” and will be held on the weekend of February 17 and 18.

Documentary, photojournalism and street photography are currently having a revival round the world, not least in Australia. Printed magazines and institutional reports are the traditional outlet for these genres, but today we also have internet, exhibitions and photo books. It is a growing, confident field.

The speakers at the conference, many from overseas, are seasoned professional photographers and educators so the standard of inquiry and exchange will be high. Click here to see the list, but two of my favourites are Katrin Koenning from Melbourne and Mustafah Abdulaziz from Berlin. There will also be an exhibition, workshop and photo book awards.

To attend the conference you need to register and pay. The cost for the  two-day weekend ticket is extremely low: $99,  or $70 with student/concession. If you’re into documentary photography, you can afford that.

One thought on “Unless You Will

  1. Hey Greg,

    Great that I can now get your blog! So glad that you got it sorted…. unfortunately I won’t be around for this which is a shame. I am lucky enough to be using up some points to visit friends in Singapore before they come back to Australia to live. It seemed like a good opportunity while it was there.

    Hope to catch you round soon.

    Kind regards, Alli
