Foto Biennale

The Ballarat International Foto Biennale, a not-for-profit event that immerses the historic town of Ballarat in photographic art, kicks off this weekend and attracts significant International and Australian photographers. . Founded in 2005, the Foto Biennale is now Australia’s leading photographic festival. They’ve done this by consistently finding new ways to engage audiences with photography and responding to audience’s needs, their changing vision of art and culture, and the role it plays in shaping Ballarat. . We couldn't agree more with Ballarat International Foto Biennale mission statement that "through photography, we see our world reflected back in unexpected ways through the eyes of others: artists, community and new perspectives". . To join in the celebrations, we've selected some of our best photographers who reflect the world back to us in unexpected ways, including artists who've partaken in the Biennale over the years.
