Hi Derby: A lovely written account of the event and some great pics of
these famous Australian Photogs. I'd make some nice prints of the lot. The
group shot was especially nice, and I have to say, Tim Page is quite dishy
:-). Thanks for posting. Cheers, Christine

Just got back from a superb event. Five photographers from °SOUTH gave a
floor talk on their show, WAR.
Ben Bohane pointed out the shame Australians should feel about the
secret war and blockade waged in Bougainville in the 90s, a direct
contravention of the UN arms embargo.
