One of the most dynamic photographers of the Twentieth Century was American Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971. She smashed through the so-called glass ceiling, entering the male preserves of industrial, commercial and wartime photography.

Her career was immortalised in the movie of her own name 'Margaret Bourke-White' starring Farah Fawcett. View it on a quiet evening with someone you love and a bottle of red. Its entertaining for all and motivating for photographers.

Bourke-White said:

'Saturate yourself with your subject and the camera will all but take you by the hand.'

How many of us have got the determination. perseverance and sheer guts to try half of what she achieved.

Putting that quote into action these days is Australian photographer Kevin Fairley. His exhibition 'Fine Art photography' commences today, 31 May 2014, in Ubud Bali, Indonesia.

Fine Art Photography Exhibition - Bali

Kevin Fairley , 31 May - 30 June 2014, BCAC Gallery Jl Raya Andong, Ubud, Bali.

Photographer, adventurer and entrepenaur Kevin Fairley has divided his time between Bali and Melbourne for the past 20 years. His early jobs driving trucks, tourism and opal mining led him to Bali where he recently built a hotel. His photographs reflect an appreciation of nature, a love of people and a seeing eye for the photographic image. There's also the hint of the larrikan in some of his most colourful images. 

Kevin's done his best to saturate himself in photography and life.

Immerse yourself in a UWA Photography Workshop and let your camera tap you on the shoulder.
