The Life Outside Issue

Introducing the Life Outside issue of Habitus magazine. With life increasingly being absorbed into a digital space, there is never a more important moment to hold something tangible. In this context, the power of nature to have a physiological impact on our sense of wellbeing has never been more important. So how can we cultivate the benefits of the our natural environment in the most intimate of places – our homes? This was the question that helped to bring this issue of Habitus to life.

The Ballarat International Foto Biennale

Australia

This year’s Biennale is set to be the biggest yet, so jump in your car
and head to Ballarat – why not take your camera along on the road trip!


When you think of the world’s best photographers, the city of Ballarat in Victoria (north-west of Melbourne) may not be the first location that comes to mind. But it has become increasingly renowned for its celebration of photography, the Ballarat International Foto Biennale.

Now celebrating its 4th instalment, the event has been included in the Festival la Luz (Festival of Light) – a grouping of 26 photography festivals across the globe. This international attention has helped the event secure 22 of the biggest names in photography for their 2011 event from 20 August – 18 September.
