From the organizer
After Sad/September’s Viva Cinema, Space Monkies returns with Op/October’s take on photography. This time, we have Nguyen Gia Hai, with his take on B&W photography, from the very first steps to a valued artistic activity.
This amicable talk invites all of your questions and confessions regarding the journey with photography, whether it is to deal with gadgets, ideas, execution, editing or production.

Graduating from TAFE NSW Northern Sydney Institute majoring in Photography, he then worked and held personal exhibitions at Fairfield University Art Museum.
