Avril Thomas is hosting A Small World--A postcard exhibition at the Magpie Springs gallery. It is the exhibition after the Weltraum exhibition in the 2016 Shimmer Photographic Biennale finishes. The postcards consist of works on paper, they are 6x4 inches and its international in scope.
The 100 or so works will be auctioned through an online auction site with the proceeds going to help raise money for a cancer charity.
This is one of the pictures that I am thinking of entering into the exhibition:
The picture of clouds on the cliffs near Kings Beach on the Fleurieu Peninsula, is made with a rangefinder 35mm Leica film camera, so the aspect ratio of the negative is 3:2, which if uncropped, will enlarge to print 4x6 inches.
An electrical storm swept through Victor Harbor on Monday night and the studio lost all internet and mobile connection. I suspect the electrical storm took out the modern.
I was lost without the connection---after several days it still hadn't been restored. So I spent my time scanning negatives from the archive.
I managed to take some cloud photos before the rain, thunderstorm happened. The lightening was happening along the cliffs in the distance.
There were lots of people standing on the cliffs looking at the atmospherics, taking photos of the approaching storm, and watching the pod of dophins hunt for fish along the coastline.
