“Welcome to Splendour and Rouge. I like to think of this blog as a coffee table book of my favourite things. I have a passion for anything creative; photography, art, fashion and graphic design. I am inspired by traveling and currently live in the USA away from my home country of Australia. I was raised  in a small village in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. I moved to a capital city to follow my creative destiny, finishing a degree in art and working as a make-up artist and graphic designer…”


The Oxford School of Photography


“The Oxford School of photography was founded by Keith Barnes in 1982 as a sister company to The Photographers Workshop, then a darkroom and studio hire centre.
OSP offers a wide range of photography courses and workshops and our blog features work from those courses but more importantly we feature the work of established and emerging photographers as well as tutorials, tips, advice and exhibition releases.”


Photography and Culture

photography and culturePhotography and Culture creates a new context for reflection on the nature of photography, its practices, meanings, and private/public worlds. In doing so it helps to redefine the study of photography as something broader than it is often taken to be.” – Jennifer G. Tucker, Department of History, Wesleyan University

Book Description

Photography and Culture is at the forefront of new critical, reflective and analytical writing on photography. It is pluralistic in its approach, inter-disciplinary, embracing the historic and the contemporary and independent of any one prevailing theoretical critical model. It mirrors and debates new ways of thinking about photography as the photographic image becomes an ever more central player in our personal and public histories and lifestories. It seeks to become an important text for a new community of interest clustered around those who use reference, interpret or analyze photographic images within their chosen fields in arts and humanities, science and social science.
