This award selected from last years art school graduates is a great opportunity to showcase some of the diverse creative talent thriving in Perth.
It is pleasing to see a commercial enterprise that understands what social responsibility entails. I’m glad committing to local cultural development is on their agenda and thank them for supporting artists.
I was pleased to be selected, and happy my work is on show.

An article for the exhibition I’m currently involved in.
Exhibition “Of Spears and Pruning Hooks II”
I am very privileged to be a part of this exhibition, involving a number of visual artists working in a variety of media and genre’s.
Having also been involved in the inaugural exhibition “Of Spears and Pruning Hooks” I was amazed by the diversity of work produced.
I am looking forward to the exhibition opening on May 1st, 2014, it will, no doubt, showcase some amazing art.
I spent yesterday walking the streets of Old Dhaka, Bangladesh with Jules, everyone is happy to have their photo taken in this place, I thought i’d share a quick snap of Jules, doing his best work.
Julian Tennant working the streets of Old Dhaka, Bangladesh taking photographs of children.
I was fortunate to be in Dhaka for the Shakrain Festival, a Hindu celebration in Old Dhaka, Bangladesh.
The afternoon is celebrated with the flying of kites from the rooftop’s of buildings, after the sun sets, fire crackers, laser lights, and music blasts from the buildings all around.
Then a few brazen men, swig what i believe to be kerosene and spit fire into the air.
An incredible celebration….
Interesting contemporary portraiture
An interesting overview of current contemporary portraiture.
Good to see local photographer Graham Miller included in this exhibition.
This sums up my current thoughts about work and photography.
“I have stated that firstly one ought to photograph for oneself not the market, secondly that being an art photography requires the same discipline and dedication that one might apply to any other field and thirdly that it is crucial to have another profession to subsidize the costs of daily life.”
