About us 

about

AUSSIE STREET was established in 2017 by a group of like-minded photographers from around Australia who were brought together by their mutual passion for the genre of street photography. Together we aim to promote, create awareness about, and be proactive in fostering events that serve the street photography community in Australia. AUSSIE STREET is not-for-profit and strives to give back to the street photography community within Australia and to connect it with other street photography communities around the globe.

AUSSIE STREET 2019

After a tremendously successful inaugural event in 2018, AUSSIE STREET is pleased to announce that it will return in 2019 for an international festival to be held in Sydney. With both local and international competitions, exhibitions, artist-talks, and workshops planned, AUSSIE STREET will bring Australian Street photography to the world’s stage by connecting local and international street photography communities. The  festival will mark AUSSIE STREET's place among the growing global calendar of events that celebrate and promote street photography.

 

Photographers

AUSSIE STREET presents Australia’s best contemporary street photography from around the country. With work from an array of photographers, we aim to show the diversity, strangeness, and wonder of everyday life in contemporary Australia.

EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION

City to Surf is an exhibition exploring two quintessential settings that have perennially captivated Australian street photographers: the sprawling metropolis and a favourite recreational locale for those looking to escape it, the beach. In Australian cities, the cost of living has never been higher and the sense of anxiety never more acutely felt; with alienation and consumerism reflected on every street corner. Whereas the beach is traditionally associated with the iconic Australian lifestyle. Populated by a diverse array of people from all backgrounds and different walks of life, aspiring to find a sense of belonging, relaxation and restoration by the water. The photographs aim to not only articulate the vast differences between the ‘City’ and the ‘Surf’ as backdrops against which the rituals of daily life are acted out, but also interrogate the connection between them as places imbued with the strangeness, wonder, and beauty of Antipodean life.

In a variety of contexts, the term can be used interchangeably to express an undeniable truth, to be firmly determined, or even ‘deadly’ serious.

“About the MCA Zine Fair

The MCA Zine Fair is an annual festival featuring a stellar line-up of zinesters, distros, independent presses, and artists. Showcasing zines, small press, prints and comics from across the country, the fair celebrates the alternative, experimental and emerging.

Zines – short for fanzines or magazines – are independent or self-published publications informed by the DIY ethos, usually hand-made and of a limited run. They come in a variety of formats and often include both original and appropriated text and images. Topics covered are broad, including poetry, art, personal journals, politics and fanfiction.”
