Happy 1st Birthday Light Journeys!

with one comment

Light Journeys has just turned 1!!! Yay! We wish to thank all those photographers who have submitted work and spread the word about the site. It’s been a thrilling year and we’ve had the pleasure and honour of featuring some of Australia’s most talented female artists.

After one year of  focusing only on Australian women, we have decided to open our submissions up to ALL women residing in Australia, regardless of their country of origin. Light Journeys will continue to accept submissions from Australian women living abroad. As Peter Allen said,  if you call Australia home, you are welcome to submit.

The Long Hot Summer

leave a comment »

A reminder at the end of a hot and humid day!

Light Journeys is calling all women to submit to a curated group exhibition on the theme of Summer, to be featured on the website in 2010. Deadline for submissions is March 1st 2010.

The equinox has passed, the axis has tilted and the sun is above us once again.

The summer cycle, with its atmosphere and festivities and its warmth and glare, is etched into the Australian psyche as well as our photographic histories. Whether in Max Dupain’s sunbather or the bodysurfer on the cover of a ‘Day in the Life of Australia’, summer is an icon that is deeply revered. But what else can this particular time and space evoke that moves beyond images of surf, sand and blokes with their beer? How can we as artists re-imagine the nuances of this season? And what about the photographic experience – deep shadows and the vividness of our stone hard light – how does the searing quality of our sun influence our vision?

All women working in photography in Australia, including prior featured artists, are invited to submit 2-3 images exploring the theme. Images should be resized as follows:

72dpi, 1000 pixels wide, sRGB profiled. Please re-title your images to surname_firstname_number.jpg and send to submit@lightjourneys.net.au

Now pick up your cameras and start shooting. Another long hot Summer is coming to an end….
