Welcome to FocusFocus is the official blog of PhotoAccess. Focus explores current ideas in photography and photo-based art practice for artists and audiences throughout Canberra and the world. We publish new writing on contemporary photography, as well as interviews, reviews and other content, giving a deeper insight into exhibitions and education at PhotoAccess and beyond.

Established in 1984, PhotoAccess is the principal destination to see and appreciate, learn about, make and show contemporary photo-based work. We are a member-based visual arts organisation presenting an ongoing program of exhibitions, courses, talks, publications and special projects including artist residencies and community digital-storytelling workshops. We manage the Manuka Arts Centre in Canberra’s Inner South, with three intimate galleries, a Canberra’s only publicly-accessible co-working black-and-white darkroom, a shared working space and a resource library. Come and see us, or become a member by visiting our official website. Here, you can also find information on our exhibitions and education programs, residencies and special projects.

For now, we hope you enjoy Focus. If you are a writer interested in contributing to Focus, please email
