Shimmer is underway

The City of Onkaparinga is presenting the 2012 Shimmer Photography Festival, featuring a range of exhibitions and events.

This is the second Shimmer festival, held every two years as celebration of acclaimed, emerging and aspirational photographers in Australia.

Shimmer provides professional skill development opportunities to local artists and offers a culturally enriching experience for our whole community.

More than thirty local galleries, libraries, wineries, cafes and restaurants will be involved in Shimmer.

Shimmer explores contemporary photography and will play host to seminars from highly regarded photographers such as Mark Kimber, Studio Head of Photography and New Media at the University of South Australia, and Gregory Ackland, Studio Head of Photography and Digital Media at Adelaide College of the Arts.

Check out the festival program to find out more about the exhibitions, events and workshops on offer.

Paul Atkins is presenting a paper on archiving and preservation of your digital images this Saturday at 2pm as a part of the Shimmer festival at the McLaren Vale visitor information centre.
