Ingetje Tadros, a Dutch woman who moved to Broome 12 years ago with her Egyptian husband to establish a café, is also a highly talented photographer. Five years ago Tadros picked up the camera and recorded what she saw in the Indigenous communities in and around Broome. The results are strong and confronting to a population who believe their government is doing all it can for Aboriginal people.
Women In Uniform presents portraits of powerful, beautiful women attempting to break the glass ceiling of traditionally male dominated careers such as pilots, trades, the police force and the defence force. The series explores themes of voyeurism, feminism and sexuality.
From May 17-June 23 the Head On Photo Festival hits Sydney, showcasing the best in Australian and international photography. Head On is Australia’s largest photographic festival with around 200 exhibitions, talks and workshops taking place over five weeks including many galleries in the South Sydney area. It provides equal opportunity for emerging and established photographers based on standard of work rather than name or celebrity.
In last year’s Head On Photo Festival one of the most talked-about exhibitions was a collective work of four female photographers called See Jane Run at Depot 2 Gallery in Danks Street, Waterloo. This popular exhibition focussed on the representation of women and girls in art and in the media.
