Since 2014, we have been immersed in the discovery of original, thought-provoking and diverse imagery. Photo collective represents photographers, advocates, educators and curators working towards the collective goal of celebrating and contributing to the changing landscape of Australian photography. We achieve this through award recognition, publications, exhibitions, community engagement initiatives and educational programs.
Through our existing initiatives Fox Darkroom & Gallery, Australian Photography Awards and Stories we have composed a diverse network of collaborators ranging from Australia’s most established visual artists to the emerging voices of the next generation. Each year we are proud to expand this network with the aim of ensuring all Australian’s feel represented within this space.
“We feel our new name truly represents the collaborative work we are doing within our community.”
In 2021 we merged our initiatives to form Photo Collective, a new organisation reflecting our values and future direction.
Photo Collective is a centre for resources, opportunities and educational programs and a source for discovery, development and inspiration. We are dedicated to finding meaning and sharing knowledge through photography.
