BOSHRA – Ernest Benton
Friday 6th – Friday 13th February 2015
Opening reception Friday 6th February 6-8 PM
Ernie was born and raised in Narromine NSW and his identity remains keenly rooted to that landscape. His observations of the environmental impact of synthetic toxins used in cotton fields triggered his concern about the degradation of the natural environment. He is a keen traveller and avidly drawn to found objects in his broader body of work.
Whilst being on the road travelling around Australia for quite a few years looking at the beautiful countryside he started noticing more and more dead trees with such beauty. They were starting to remind him of beautiful old people he had met along the way, the older they got the more beautiful and interesting they became and that would inspire him to keep driving to see more beauty this would make him go into a trance and deep thought. Every chance to drive through western NSW or any part of our beautiful country he would find inspiration to paint and draw. He regularly makes these trips now even since moving to the big smoke!

New Streamlined Pricing System
We've been hard at work over the Christmas / New Year break developing our new online ordering system and a new streamlined pricelist format to make your life super-easy. We will launch the online ordering system in late Feb 2015 but we thought we'd give clients a sneak peek at our new streamlined price list to be valid from Feb 9th 2015.
And given that we, like many other Australian businesses, have been hammered through 2014 by increased pricing for raw material, electricity, freight and labour, yep, you guessed right, a small price rise has become inevitable.
Yes, we could have cut costs instead but our quality would have suffered and we know Pixel Perfect's clients simply want the best product we can offer. Whether it is the best media from Kodak, Fuji, Hahnemule, Canson & Ilford or genuine long-life inks from Epson & HP or the finest printing and colour management machinery and strategies, we leave no stone unturned in our quest for perfection!
Please download our new Standard Price List from here.
Check out some new work from our NEW Asukabook Ambassador Paul Hoelen!
We are proud to be partnered with Paul, whos body of work shows just how adventurous you can be with both your photography and Asukabook designs. We are looking forward to working with Paul and turning his beautiful images in to books that will last a lifetime!
Check out Paul "working hard” on assignment.
All of the above images were taken from Paul's recent trip to The Grand Canyon – proving that you can mix business with pleasure so long as you work with the same passion that he clearly does!
Take control of the New Year by taking control of your time!

HOW YOUR OLD CAMERAS CAN HELP CHANGE THE WORLD!
TRIBE PHOTO democratizes photography by turning remote villagers into photographers enabling them to sell their best work and us to gain a unique insight into their world.
How many of you have old digital cameras lying around on a shelf, never to be used again? We have a suggestion that not only finds new life for your old camera, but it helps people in remote villages who wish to become photographers. Pixel Perfect is partnering with Tribe Photo to collect old working digital cameras from volunteers. Tribe Photo will establish "camera stores” in remote villages, run by a local village partner, and rent these cameras out at a nominal rate (about 10c per day). Tribe Photo will then offer free training and a platform for these villagers to sell their best work online. The photographer will get to keep half of the money made through selling, with the other half split between the local store partner and Tribe Photo.
Which sort of cameras can I give?
Any working digital camera with a working battery and charger. Whether an old point-and-shoot or a DSLR it doesn't matter. Basically these just need to be old but in good working order.
1. Working digital camera.
2. Working battery.
3. Working battery charger.
Where do I send it?
Pixel Perfect Prolab, 90 Abercrombie Street, Chippendale, NSW, 2008, Australia.
What do I get for it?
This is primarily about you giving opportunity to others less fortunate. Thank you in advance for your support!! You will be listed as a Donor on the Tribe Photo website if you include your details when you send in your old camera.
How do I find out more about Tribe Photo?
Their website is http://tribe.photo and Facebook page is here. They are raising funds through a Kickstarter campaign right now.
