    Melbourne/Victoria: "Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation"

    For anyone in Melbourne or central Victoria (Australia) I highly recommend seeing the exhibition detailed below at the Bendigo Art Gallery. It's even free.

    It's a collection of some of the finest black and white prints you are ever likely to see, mostly vintage or printed during the life time of the respective photographers. If you love the work of the likes of C.S Bull, George Hurrell or similar Hollywood greats then you have to be nuts to miss this.

    You have to be on drugs to miss this, IMHO.

    I went to see this today, and highly recommend. Many of the photos I knew from books, but seeing the properly framed silver or platinum prints was very satisfying. The thick and richly illustrated book of the exhibition is only $40 - I left Bendigo very pleased...

    Do you have the name and number of the book please. Bendigo's site does not mention it.

    The exhibition is on 'till 12th Feb. I'm probably going to go again while I have the chance.

    The book is worth every cent, $49 IIRC. Interestingly the prints in the book are 'better' in many respects than the actual images on display. The images in the book are some times larger, sharper and certainly 'brighter' (as the illumination in the Gallery leaves some thing to be desired) but the real images can't have their glow/brilliance reproduced.

    Marc, is it a paperback or a hard cover book?

    I'm getting conflicting information, dependent upon whom I'm considering purchasing this book from.

    Landed in Australia from the UK, it's $28.09 today.

    Mick, it's a satisfyingly weighty paperback!

    Marc, thanks for that, purchasing it from The Book Depository will save me at least $10.00 which will go to the cost of diesel, allowing me to see the exhibition and have the book, for approximately the cost of the book alone in this country.

    We are going up tomorrow, camping in the sticks overnight, then home late Sunday

    Mick.
