BIFB'11 - Roger Donaldson: A survey

Saturday, August 20, 2011 - Sunday, September 18, 2011, 9 AM - 5 PM

Ian Potter Foundation Gallery
Admission: Free

This exhibition presents 50 works from the 45-year career of photographer and film-maker Roger Donaldson.

Born in Ballarat in 1945 and trained in his hometown as a geologist, Donaldson moved to New Zealand in the mid 1960s where he took up photography, working in advertising and photojournalism.

By the 1970's he had started to direct television commercials and this was to lead inexorably to the directing of documentaries and then feature films. Donaldson, who since the 1980s has lived mainly in the United States of America, is probably best known for his films Smash Palace, The World's Fastest Indian and The Bank Job.
