Photo News – Colombo Art Biennial and the Roaming Eye arrives in Sri Lanka

I made it. Hotshoe Blog will for the next five weeks have the Roaming Eye (tRE) reporting from Asia – Sri Lanka and Singapore – as well as covering its usual eclectic mix of photo-related news. Any leads, events or photographers from, or living in these countries, let us know and we can take a look at what you do.

It’s time to get away from the desk and from the usual stream of photo PR, which we will still be covering, and get out and about on a voyage of discovery. While tRE adjusts to the East and a different time frame, I leave you with two music videos. One sums up the experience of travelling and is the theme tune for the Eye, the other reminded me of many photos I have seen in documentary projects shot in and around Eastern Europe. Images and sound, but particularly music, have a power to transport me… I hope these do too. Till tomorrow and a report on the Colombo Art Biennale (CAB) taking place from 15-19 February.

“The Second Edition of the Colombo Art Biennale with “Becoming” Sri Lankan Contemporary Culture at it’s very best. Experience the City of Colombo over a period of five days becoming an artistic phenomenon. The Colombo Art Biennale this year adopting the theme of “Becoming”, which will be reflected by the astonishing variety of the best of the best contemporary art on show. “Becoming” will be showcased at The National Art Gallery, JD Perera Gallery, Park Street Mews and Maradana Warehouse Project.”
