Reportage Festival is a celebration of visual narrative, raising awareness and understanding of documentary photography and the issues represented by the medium, whilst supporting artists and delivering unique workshops.
Now in it’s 11th season it has become a featured event of Vivid Sydney from 2013.
One of Australia’s most eminent documentary photographers, original co-founder of the festival and Canon EOS Master, Stephen Dupont returns to the festival as Director from 2012.
The festival features immersive large-scale outdoor projections of world-class photographic works on the Vivid Light Walk, exclusive talks and workshops by the world’s leading documentary photographers and Australian début exhibitions at diverse locations in central Sydney.
Reportage began as a screening night of photographic projections celebrating and deepening the exposure of documentary photography for Australian photographers.
Born in a Bondi living room in 1999 when a group of friends (Stephen Dupont, Jack Picone, David Dare Parker and Michael Amendolia) took turns showing their latest work, Reportage has grown to become Australia’s leading showcase of national and international documentary photography. Photo editor Jacqui Vicario directed the festival for around 10 years from 2000 – 2011 with the creative input of the founding photographers.
