20150608 - Ann Creber's radio show The Good Life
Today John Weeks was a guest on Ann Creber's radio show The Good Life on radio station 3MDR 97.1 FM Live and Streaming worldwide www.3mdr.com. John was talking about his recent experiences in the Philippines and other photography projects..
Later, in Ann's online newsletter, Ann Creber Collections - WordPress.com, she states:
John Weeks recently spent 6 weeks in the Philippines travelling with a group of Seventh Day Adventist missionaries, and this gave him the opportunity of meeting and speaking with people the average tourist would never encounter.
He was impressed with the welcome and warmth the locals offered the group and shared a wide range of interesting experiences. These included a visit to a jail, where the visitors were welcomed by prisoners. John visited several times and was shocked to be told that if a prisoner could not afford a defence, he or she could be kept there indefinitely. He noted too that most of the prisoners were heavily tattooed, but did not see anybody in the general public with tatts.
He did note how many young people in the cities carried mobile phones, often one in each hand!
He was invited to speak to a group and accepted, expecting to have an audience of perhaps 100. He was amazed and flattered when about 1000 people arrived and listened attentively throughout his speech!
As a keen photographer, of course he took photos constantly as they travelled and in due course these will appear on his website. We are still enjoying photos taken on his Indian trip, so I'm looking forward to these new additions.

20130801 - FatSpace Exhibition
FatSpace in Tecoma (Victoria, Australia) is an artist's run space in Tecoma tackling contentious, confronting, current and controversial community issues.
McDonald's wants to build a 24 hour drive thru next door!
Exhibition : High Resvolution
Foreword to the above booklet : Wikipedia that bastion of truth, devotes over half of its entry for Tecoma to the McDonalds controversy. History can explain the present and capturing that present makes for a better future. While Tecoma remains immersed in its David and Goliath struggle with multinational McDonalds, photographers Glenn Stephenson and John Weeks have captured our present with prescience and sensitivity.
High Resvolution, the exhibition presents but a fraction of their works, but what is there cuts through to the personal, the idiosyncratic account.
Their images reveal who we are and how we relate to the world now. But is there anything in our past that hinted at why small town Tecoma of all small towns would become the David in the struggle with the corporate giant McDonalds? We have selected a tiny portion of Charles Hammond's collection from the State Library of Victoria to provide some hint of how we might have got here. There is something of the cultivated larrikan in Charlie Hammond. The moving record of his life with 'sweetheart' Gussie, his delightful illustrations of early Tecoma, garden birds and long-gone tea parties reverberate still.
Even his concrete garden creatures provide an echo for the Tecoma gnomes. We thank all our contributors. Glenn Stephenson, John Weeks, all the other photographers, Charles Hammond Collection from the State Library of Victoria.
A Thank You, as stated in the booklet :
Thank you Glenn Stephenson, John Weeks and all the other contributors for the photography, to the Tecoma 8 for their bravery and to all the community who have given their time, their money and their love in a hundred creative ways to protect the Dandenong Ranges from corporate domination
