CCP/Nikon Professional Services Members' Evening with Bob Hewitt
Friday 1 April 2011 - 6.15pm
CCP is delighted to announce that Festival Director Bob Hewitt is the special guest for a joint Members' Evening with NPS and CCP.
What makes a great festival of photography? Where does Australia stand in relation to the international circuit of photography festivals? What's on offer at FotoFreo in 2012? How can we participate? CCP is delighted to announce that Festival Director Bob Hewitt is the special guest for a joint Members' Evening with NPS and CCP.
FotoFreo is a month long biennial festival of photography that showcases the work of Australian photographers alongside leading photographers from Asia, Europe and North America. The Festival consists of exhibitions, projections, portfolio reviews, workshops, film screenings (about photography) and a programme of discussions about the exhibited work and other issues relating to contemporary photography. From its early beginnings in 1996, when the Festival was developed by a group of photographers and other interested people, FotoFreo has grown into a significant biennial photography event with international participation.
From mining industry company director to FotoFreo Director, Bob Hewitt was instrumental in creating the inaugural FotoFreo Festival in 2002. He has been involved with all subsequent Festivals as Festival Coordinator and was mainly responsible for programme development, selection of participants (both photographers and speakers), sponsorship and administration. Inaugural Chair of the FotoFreo Board of Management (until 2010), Bob Hewitt is now Festival Director for FotoFreo 2012. He has been instrumental in commissioning new work for the Festival, a point of difference with other similar events, starting with Edward Burtynsky in 2008, David Dare Parker in 2010 and Martin Parr in 2012.
