Each year I get together with Ian Brown and Len Metcalf and do a show. This year it opens on the 4th October and runs until the 28th at the Heritage Centre Blackheath, right down the end of Govett’s Leap road on the left, at the National Parks Centre.
This year, the story is about beauty. Many in the art world would say beauty is an outdated and naive concept for producing art of substance. We disagree, and have done for a long time. Beauty has been at the core of our collaborative work for a long time, and has been the driver for work ranging from complex rainforest studies to minimalist desertscapes to nudes and now to fashion and other things.
Come and check it out, love to see you there.

dieter-tracey said: Hi Mike, I read your article on 'What makes a good photograph and how do I take one?' As someone who feels finally ready for a bit of 'unlearning' it was a timely read, and I most definitely appreciate the sentiment. Just wanted to mention that I've been a long time fan, and have always held your work as an example of the quality I'd like to eventually achieve. Chuffed that you admire Burtynsky. Your landscapes, Murray Fredericks' 'Salt' series and Ed Burtynsky's China are the pinnacle for me.

Thank you Dieter for your kind words. Your term ‘unlearning’ is such an important one for all artists to ‘learn’. I’m really glad you got something out of the article and thanks for the feedback.

And thank you above all for placing me alongside Burtynsky and Fredericks!

Cheers,
Mike

More scratches and dust but beneath all that is the most glorious tonal scale imaginable. Film, that’s why.
