The Night Reverses at The Lost Ones Basement Bar
Sat Aug 26th, 7-9pm
Books and CDs available for purchase on the night.
Fresh from their White Night Ballarat premiere, Geoffrey Williams and Nathan Curnow return with The Night Reverses, exploring the rhythm of the line and the groove of the beat, mixing performance poetry into live music improvisation.
Delivering a selection of spoken word pieces, Nathan presents Geoffrey with a springboard challenge. Upon hearing each poem for the very first time Geoffrey must immediately reply, freestyling the work before a live audience, with nothing but vocals, a loop machine and the instinct he’s honed over the course of his international career.
Supported by Melbourne spoken word legend, Sean M Whelan, this is an evening of words, beats and harmonies, an event that can never be repeated in exactly the same way.
Tickets limited to 50 seats. Book now.

Kill!’, ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ and the early films of John Waters. Raffles, prizes and competitions. Get ready to party.
2pm - 4pm, 16th September 2017
What role should storytelling and narrative play in this era where technically beautiful photographs are within every photographer’s and smartphone owner’s reach? How important is it for today’s true art photographers to blend the conventions of reportage and beauty? With economic and political pressures upon the traditional media bringing about sudden changes to the photographic sector, we take a moment to examine the future state of Australian photography.
This seminar and podcast recording looks at how the slow death of one sector may be helping to bring about the rise of another. In Australia, as newspaper photo desks are squeezed by economic pressures, we are witnessing the birth of photographer-led networks who seek to change the status quo by driving a new set of creative standards. What is the likelihood of their survival? Is it possible for them to find a market? How do these new collectives maintain independence in their reporting techniques, and is it needed?
This is a seminar made up of the leading lights of Australian documentary photography, known best for their work overseas rather than here. Our panellists include:
- Heidi Romano - independent artist with over 15 years of experience within the field of photography. In late 2009 she founded UNLESS YOU WILL, an acclaimed online photography magazine. In February 2015 she directed the inaugural Photobook Melbourne festival. In 2017, she directed a conference ‘A weekend of conversations, inspiration & insights’, presenting a collection of notable photographers from around the world.
- Morganna Magee - an Australian social documentary photographer and educator based in Melbourne, Victoria. Co-founder of the Lumina Collective. Finalist in the Maggie Diaz prize, finalist in the National Portrait Prize 2013, finalist 2012 and the 2016 headon portrait prize. Morganna’s work centres around long term projects, challenging the traditional relationship between photographer and subject.
- Raphaela Rosella - an Australian photographer working in the tradition of long-form documentary storytelling. Raphaela has exhibited in Photoquai (France), Noorderlicht Photofestival (Netherlands) and Photo Ireland (Ireland). Attendee of World Press Photo’s prestigious Joop Swart Masterclass. First Prize (Portrait Singles Category) World Press Photo Contest (2015) and Australian Photobook of the Year (Momentro Pro) (2015).
- Penny Stephens - Penny Stephens is a photographer in Melbourne. She worked for The Age for 22 years where she witnessed the daily rawness of life. In 2011 she went to Afghanistan with the ADF. Her work on the effects of climate
change in the Solomon Islands won a UN media award. Penny was also a finalist in the Moran Photographic Portrait prize. In an increasingly fractured news media, she believes great photojournalism is more vital than ever.
Seats are limited, and all proceeds from the ticket price are directed to baby John, the newborn son of Rowrow, one of Raphaela Rosella's documentary subjects.
