For Love and or Money: IPF


“How do documentary photographers afford to get their rolls of film developed let alone keep their landlords happy? When you’ve spent all day shooting commercial work, what keeps you inspired to work on your own stuff? How do you explain your project with enough detail to a grant board before you’ve even made it?”

Is this a familiar hurt, do you suffer from cramps and sleepless nights? Find a cure for your suffering, or at the very least ears for your complaints. Following the IPF Photo Prize ribbon cutting the previous night ‘For Love And/Or Money’ marks the start of a jam-packed, fun filled Melbourne IPF calendar. Led by Max Olijnyk, Sarah Pannell, Garry Trinh and Tom Ross, FLAOM discusses the balance between creative practice and economic viability, with insights from some of the hardest-working photographers in Australia. RSVP’s are a must and entrance is only tooth fairy currency, confirm a seat here before they’re gone. Sun 8 Nov, 11:00 AM. School House Studios – 81 Rupert St, Collingwood 3067.
