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.
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.
German: Johanna Ahlert, Natalie Bothur, Jörg Brüggemann, Thekla Ehling, Albrecht Fuchs, Jan v. Holleben, Karsten Kronas, Anne Lass, Jens Liebchen, Myriam Lutz, Julian Röder, Josef Schulz, Oliver Sieber, Ivonne Thein, Olaf Unverzart, Sascha Weidner.
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.
