New photographic exhibition showcased on HUL Ballarat

FedUni sponsors photography exhibition at Gold Museum

Art, history and technology join forces in a new photographic exhibition by Andrew Thomas sponsored by Federation University Australia’s Centre for eResearch and Digital Innovation (CeRDI) from late August.

In February this year the Centre’s work on the new Visualising Ballarat and Historic Urban Landscape (HUL) web portals were launched at the City of Ballarat and Federation University Australia’s Revitalising Historic Cities International HUL Symposium.  Ballarat is a pilot city for UNESCO’s HUL approach, focussing on community values and ways of managing historic cities sustainably as they grow and change. The University, in partnership with the City of Ballarat, is mapping and geo-referencing a variety of historic material and contemporary data in order to help capture Ballarat’s distinctive character and local values and stories to guide the management of change in the city.

Award-winning landscape photographer Andrew Thomas is exhibiting exciting aerial images of Ballarat and surrounds for this year’s Ballarat International Foto Biennale at the Gold Museum.  The images are showcased on the HUL Ballarat website, demonstrating a unique view of contemporary Ballarat’s diverse landscapes, both built and natural.  You can view Andrew's amazing aerial images on the HUL Ballarat photo map

Thousands of people are set to pass through Ballarat for the biannual photography festival featuring Australian and international artists in venues across the city from 22 August to 20 September 2015.
