Gallery Project bridges the gap between people with a mind for social justice and traditional print media.
The demise of traditional media has seen print magazines follow
revenue raising celebrity gossip leaving social justice stories to fall
by the wayside. Gallery Project provides a platform to give these issues the
attention they deserve, while empowering others to tell the story
Gallery Project is a culmination of documentary photographer Mark
Tipple and social entrepreneur Nikki James. 'I worked closely with three
organisations while shooting the Chasing the Jakartan Dream reportage in Indonesia, upon returning to Australia having to tell them that
their story wasn't receiving any attention in mainstream media was
to say the least,' Mark says. 'This concept will
raise the profile of organisations we work with, and source them with funds to continue their projects.'
