“The Melbourne Silver Mine Inc. is a non-profit incorporated association of enthusiastic analogue photographers based in Melbourne Australia.
The group has been formed to achieve the following purposes:
Although we primarily exist to promote traditional photo technologies we embrace modern and future techniques. Our members are very technologically aware and seek to demonstrate how traditional technologies can work with digital photography and other modern photographic techniques to achieve a new art form, drawing the best from both old and new methods.
The Melbourne Silver Mine has formed over the past 18 months after a small group of like minded photographers formed on the photo sharing website flickr.com.
The group continues to grow and inspire more photographers to return to film photography or to take it up for the first time. We share ideas, techniques and equipment. This enthusiasm gave rise to our inaugural exhibition of analogue photography, Unsensored07, which was held at Kerala Gallery in Northcote, Melbourne in November 2007. 12 photographers exhibited 24 works.
In 2008, Unsensored08 is double in size with 30 photographers exhibiting 46 works at the Collingwood Gallery from 8th to 20th August 2008.
We have plans for events, publications and collaborative photographic projects that highlight the group’s objectives.
Thanks for your interest and participation, you can become a part of the Melbourne Silver Mine by joining us as a member or sponsoring our projects."
