A wee pic by bradley scott testing a 5/4″ rangefinder by Razzle. So a bit of news: Congrats to Barat Ali Batoor on his fantastic Walkley win and you can hear his artist talk at 10/8 gallery, Surry Hills, tomorrow too. Also learnt Tim Page was bitten by a AFP Bureau guard dog in Hanoi covering General Gaip’s funeral. His good self & I will be at the Sydney Polo club for a Soldier On charity event and will have a collection of his “Diggers in the Nam” prints for a viewing. The exhibition at Blanco will be next month. Chris Reid by Bradley Scott

Cuttin' Loose

Cuttin' loose. The reportage festival, though mostly now ended, was an awesome event. A time to see old friends and an opportunity make new ones. A personal highlight was meeting the master, James Natchwey at Ambush gallery for the closing of Reportage. Photographer Yuri Kozyrev had an amazing body of work, with the good folks at Ambush hosting a lovely night. I'm very much looking forward to next years festival…..James Natchwey
