In 2015, Photobook Melbourne was realised as an international festival with Heidi as festival director, along with her partner in crime, Co-Founder Daniel Boetker-Smith. Photobook Melbourne provided a platform to create and celebrate excellence in the field of photography and a meeting place for artists, book lovers, publishers, experts and collectors – to encounter, reflect, examine, network and exchange.
Exhibitions and workshops included international artists such as Ron Jude, Katrin Koenning, Robert Zhao Renhui, and Yaakov Israel.
2015 — festival direction and programming, curation, event management, artist liaison, funding, partnerships and sponsorships, festival marketing, everything from A-Z.
