Description

The Image Makers Seminar Series 2017: 09 Tom Goldner – Passage



DESCRIPTION

The Photography Studies College (Melbourne) is delighted to present one of our Graduate Students Tom Goldner, at 6pm on Friday 27th October.

Tom Goldner’s career spans art, portraiture, documentary and commercial projects.

Tom is passionate about the role photography can play in promoting social and cultural outcomes. His Volta project (2010 – 2013) showcased haunting black and white photographs taken around the remote Lake Volta region of Ghana. Tom lived with, and spent time documenting the work and day-to-day lives of communities affected by child labour in Ghana’s finishing industry.

In 2014 Tom founded The Fox Darkroom to share his enthusiasm for black-and-white film photography. Rather than focusing on nostalgia or trends, Tom’s practice explores the relevance of traditional processes in the contemporary landscape of photography.

The opening of The Fox Gallery in 2016 reflects both his ongoing commitment to traditional darkroom printing. The gallery has become an important outpost for both photographers and members of the public to experience and engage with important photographic works.


Tom’s 2017 exhibition Passage featured a series of hand printed, atmospheric black and white landscapes taken around the Mont Blanc regions of France, Italy and Switzerland.

The series captures a time of transition in his photographic practice. Ever-conscious of the changing nature of the landscape – the fact that you could stand in the same spot one year later and find everything had changed.


Tom has started work on his next endeavour, Of the Sea is a long-term photographic study that honours planet Earth’s greatest river of life: the global ocean.
