At this stage several photographers have provisionally agreed to participate: namely, Tony Kearny, James Tylor, Nici Cumpston, Stravos Pippos, Paul Atkins, With Lars Heldmann and myself that makes 7 photographers in the project. A few more may come on board (possibly Mark Kimber and Andrew Dearman) whilst others may pull back from full participation.
Some background text to the project has been written, and there are a few links to provide reference points for the project. It is looking quite promising at this early stage, despite the lack of a website for the project. At the moment this blog is the only online presence for the project.
The 1st exhibition has been planned for the SALA Festival in Adelaide in 2019, with the gallery at Atkins Photo Lab decided on. The design of the exhibition in this rectangular space has been tentatively mapped out: there will be 6-9 photographers and 12-14 prints–maybe more– in the exhibition, with each responding differently to the general Godson Collection from their own perspective.
Some may just do the odd image for the specific exhibitions whilst others may link or connect parts of their own projects to the general Godson Collection. The responses will be quite diverse: the photographers could rephotograph, reinterpret or critique the Collection in general and they will be using using contemporary, classical and alternative technologies.
