A few months ago I went to Fotofreo. Fotofreo is an annual month long photography festival held in Fremantle, Western Australia. It’s a candy store for anyone who loves photography whether you’re involved in the industry or just love looking at great art. There are workshops and special events as well but the main course is the exhibitions. Martin Parr, Christian Fletcher, Les Walking and Peter Eastway all had or were part of exhibitions.
I say part of because the biggest exhibition was held in Midland 40 kilometres east of Freo and about 20 east of Perth. Sixty photographers from all over the globe exhibited their work there. It was mind blowing.
For anyone looking to go next year (or even be a part of it) the website is www.fotofreo.com. Sadly none of the works displayed are on the site. So you’ll have to settle for a couple of ours.
