MAPping Ballarat was one of several small town projects, where MAPgroup photographers document a country town and donate the images back to the community as a visual archive. In 2008, with the support of Ballarat Council, MAPgroup photographed the rural community of Ballarat in country Victoria. In 2009, the resulting images were exhibited as part of the Core Program at the Ballarat International Foto Biennale (BIFB), at the Town Hall.
Following the success of the original project, MAPgroup was invited back to further explore Ballarat. The resulting exhibition, Mapping Ballarat 2011, was shown at the BIFB in 2011 as well as a screen only exhibition, Ballarat and Beyond.
A selection of images from the above projects appear in this gallery.
