Award winning photographers Mark Clinton, Michael Corridore, Tamara Dean, John Feely, Troy Goodall and Jouk Oosterhof have found a new home at PHOTOPLAY, as the production company unveils the launch of a new dedicated arm to represent high end artistic photographers alongside its film directors.
Cannes multi-award winning Michael Corridore comes to Photoplay as a previous winner of the Aperture Foundation Portfolio Prize and fresh from a group exhibition at the Obscura Festival of Photography 2016.
His personal work has amassed an impressive global following and this year he won the Photobook Melbourne Photo Award and his film ‘The Rip’ was shortlisted for a Cannes Lion Film Craft Award.
Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize and National Photographic Portrait Prize finalist Tamara Dean is equally excited to come on board and joins Netherlands-based National Portrait Prize 2015 nominee Jouk Oosterhof; highly sought-after lifestyle and outdoor photographer Mark Clinton; this year’s Capture Magazine Emerging Australian Photographer of the Year and new Oculi member John Feely; and, Lürzer’s Archive of the Top 200 Photographers Worldwide listed New Zealand–based photographer Troy Goodall.
Heading up the new Photoplay Photography arm is partner and executive producer Alison Lydiard (pictured above). Previously the general manager of Griffin Theatre Company and producer of Publicis Mojo’s Roche Contemporary Art Prize, she has also worked as a senior art buyer at Saatchi & Saatchi and as creative services manager at Y&R.
Producer Ross Colebatch, who has consulted to the Moran Arts Foundation and Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, supports Lydiard in the role.
“Our photographers create their own individual image of beauty and provoke things differently,” said Lydiard.
“I’m so excited to join forces with executive producer Oliver Lawrance and the Photoplay team who are visually arresting storytellers that understand the equal importance of narrative; whether it is across film or in photography and in new types of collaborative projects.”
Executive producer Oliver Lawrance (pictured above) added, “Launching a photography arm of Photoplay is exciting yet it also feels like a natural progression from the kind of work we already do as narrative filmmakers, especially in the digital age, where storytellers are increasingly working across both film and photography.
“I’m thrilled to have our photographers and film directors working in a creative space which encourages this kind of cross-pollination and collaboration from the outset.”
The introduction of the photographers alongside the film directors at Photoplay sees the launch of their new website photoplay.co, designed by Christopher Holt.
