Jeff Moorfoot has come a long way since being a high school dropout. Without an overabundance of intelligence, talent or skill, he has walked a long and varied photographic path to University lecturer, Master Photographer, Festival Director, Editor and Publisher, Independent Curator, Order of Australia Medalist, and amongst other things he survived a bushfire, built his own house and achieved Rock Star status in China. 

Join Jeff in his artist talk and hear some of the philosophy, bad jokes and inspiration that have accompanied him on his journey. 

Jeff Moorfoot’s exhibition Scan is a collection of images made over the past decade. The unifying factor is that all of the exhibiting works are made not with a camera, but instead via a flatbed scanner. The process somewhat contemporises and pays respect to one of the earliest photographic processes, the photogram.


In his Masterclass, Jeff shares the technique he employs in creating these works of art with a flatbed scanner.

This Masterclass will offer hands-on experience to participants using a flatbed scanner to produce their own artworks. The workshop will give insights into the process, philosophy, technique, and aesthetics of scanner art as well as feedback on works produced.

Jeff’s scan image series have been exhibited widely in Australia and also internationally. His series ‘Twenty Carat Love’ was awarded the best international exhibition at the Pingyao International Photo Festival in China in 2014.

Jeff also expands on the detail of how these works evolved and will give a practical demonstration of the process from concept to output.

This Masterclass is best suited to individuals who possess at least an intermediate skill level with some degree of digital post-production knowledge. Bring your own laptop and flatbed scanner if you have one and props to make an artwork with.
