FotoFreo 2012 Photographic Project: Magnum photographer Martin Parr was brought to Western Australia by FotoFreo Festival Director Bob Hewitt to photograph three major port cities, Fremantle, Broome and Port Hedland. I went along to document the Broome and Port Hedland legs of the project.
We helped launch the Nikon 1 series mirror-less camera system in style yesterday in Sydney. For those not ready for a DSLR but still wanting something serious to capture images with, this new system will be a big hit. I have been looking for a discrete camera to carry with me at all times so I will definitely be putting my order in for the V1 as soon as it becomes available.
The World is not such a small place, plenty of room to share when you demonstrate the right attitude and grace.
