Don’t forget the Opening night of the Pilbara Project Exhibition

3 Feb 2011 at 7:31pm

It is going to be a great night. Everyone is going to be there! (don’t you hate it when people say that!) Is it true or are they just saying that because they are worried no one will turn up?

We are not worried about that. If you really want to see what Les Walkling, Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt, Michael Fletcher and myself have been up to make sure you are there. It isn’t often you get a chance to meet these guys too or for that matter buy one of their images.

Below is the invite again. If you are new to blogging remember to click on this image then when it is displayed in a new page to click on it again to get to 100%. Some people have been saying it is too hard to read.

Remember to RSVP to Form, see you on the night.

p.s. Dylan has a lens for sale.

I have a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens for sale. Has literally only been used a handful of times and will come in the original box. I’m looking for around $500 but am open to offers at info@dylanfox.com.au

shooting in the Pilbara

23 Sep 2010 at 5:12am

hi all

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I have been up in Karratha for the past three days. Hanging out with Tony Hewitt, les Walkling, Bill Fox an amazing writer from America and the equally amazing painter Larry Mitchell. Oh not to forget our poor guide Mollie from FORM. She has to put up with 5 artists!

If you have sent me an email I will try to get backup you on my return but the day after I get home from this trip I will be back on the road heading to James Price Point. I’m going to be even more behind. Such is life.

I have been getting some interesting pictures here and learning heaps from the others. My eyes have been opened up all over again.

Remember a group of us will be at James Price Point on the 1st of October to see what is there and photograph it. If you feel like camping with us come along. It will be fun and for a good cause. We won’t be waving banners just getting an idea of the place for ourselves. See you there.

Curtis

2 Sep 2010 at 9:32pm

Curtis Taylor is a young guy we met out at Parnngurr when on the last Pilbara Project shoot. Curtis works with Martu Media, a program of Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa. He has produced short films that describe the history and culture of Parnngurr (Cotton Creek), his home community in Martu Country, for the project’s multimedia installation One Road. He is studying film making so him and Michael hit it off straight away. He was kind enough to show us around his land. It is a spectacular place and standing on the hill above town he pointed out to us where his peoples land extended to. Off in the distance were lots of hills and plateaus all begging to be explored. I must get back there soon. There was something about being so remote that felt great. And just to show how small the world is I bumped into a Dunsborough guy who is living out there and doing volunteer work in the community. It blew me away. I love this portrait of Curtis, you can see he is a strong, proud fellow. Will be keen to see his work.

Shot with the Phase One P65+ and the glorious 80mm Schneider, hows the bokeh!!

Back From the Desert

Rudall River National Park

Hi everyone

Just returned home from what was an amazing shoot in the heart of the east Pilbara. Myself, Les Walkling, Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt, Michael Fletcher, Larry Mitchell, William Fox and our guide Tim Acker drove about 300kms inland from Newman to check out the Rudall River National Park now called Karlamilyi National Park and to spend some time with the local Parnngurr aboriginal community. We were lucky enough to have access to the community and to be able to photograph the artists and teach the local kids a thing or two about photography. It was an amazing experience and we all agreed that the land has a hold on us in an almost spiritual way. It is hard to describe unless you have been there. It is so remote and so surprising I’m sure I will be going back.

The park sits on the boundary between the Great Sandy and Little Sandy Deserts and if you decide to go you have to be self sufficient. There is no fuel, food or medical help available. A great place to go and get bitten by a snake, we actually saw a Death Adder on our first day photographing around Newman. A guide is recommended and we were lucky to have a great one in Tim who  was a great cook to boot.

I have lots more stories to tell from this trip so will gesticulate more in coming posts. Oh and BTW, it is not good to be home to the real world!

De Grey Station Workshop

6 Aug 2009 at 3:01am

de grey 1

This is a pic from the recent workshop I helped run in Port Hedland. This shot was taken in the old wool shed at De Grey Station. This property is owned by David Bettini’s family and is something like a million acres or there abouts. David who is a great landscape photographer, will be able to tell you more. There was some magic late arvo light coming into the shed and a lot of dust on the ground. A few handfuls in the air and it came alive.
