Final Artist Selection: Hijacked 2 - Australia & Germany



Happy New Year Everyone. I am delighted to announce the final selection for Hijacked Volume 2 - Australia & Germany. I have spent more than 12 months researching and shortlisting photographic artists from Australia and Germany, with over 300 photographers submitting work for the project, we have arrived at a final list of 32 artists. Obviously it was not possible to include everyone, and we have left out many talented people, we just did not have enough space available in the publication. The book is scheduled for release in June. The Australian Centre for Photography will launch the book and exhibition on Thursday, June 10th, so be welcome to attend if you are in Sydney town. The exhibition at the ACP runs June 11 - July 17.


During the 2009 northern hemisphere summer I was lucky enough to work with German co-editors Ute Noll & Markus Schaden. I met Markus in Arles and he was instantly impressed with the first draft selection shortlist. We later worked during July & August in Köln and Stuttgart, and since I returned to Australia, we have utilised skype communication to continue the process. I met Ute Noll in 2008, when I was presenting Hijacked Volume 1 - Australia & America in Stuttgart and was impressed by her individual and independent approach. character and enthusiam.



Some photographs are attached, of Ute, Markus and I working together in Köln, in a community hall, some fotos from Arles and from Köln. It was great fun, hard work and a fantastic experience to be working with two great, funny and professional people. Many Thanks to Peter Granser for hooking me up with so many wicked and intelligent people in Europe. Thanks to Lucille Lagier from Atelier de visu in Marseille, for providing me with an awesome pad to crash at in Arles during the Festival, and to Mathieu Bernard-Reymond and Captain Rinny Gremaud for being such great travel companions and friends throughout our road trip in Switzerland and France. I hope to see you all again this summer.







I am pleased to announce that we have finally and painstakingly selected artists for Hijacked - Volume 2 - Australia and Germany.
The artists in Hijacked Two are:

Australian: Narelle Autio, James Brickwood, Michael Corridore, Andrew Cowen, Tamara Dean, Jackson Eaton, Suzie Fox, Lee Grant, Derek Henderson, Rebecca Ann Hobbs, Ingvar Kenne, Bronek Kózka, Georgia Metaxas, Conor O’Brien, Polixeni Papapetrou, Louis Porter.

Thank you to everyone who gave valuable time and energy and submitted works to this project for considered inclusion. For the Australian Photographic Artists who missed out, please don’t be disappointed, we will commence work on Hijacked 3 soon and you will again be given the opportunity to submit artworks.
