I’m passionate about bringing art to the people; this project is a reflection of that. For me, it is important to exhibit the work locally so the work reflects the community back at itself.
In 2018 I was commissioned by the Manning Regional Art Gallery in Taree to participate in ‘Manning Migrants’, a public art project that shines a spotlight on migrants living and working in the Manning Valley. As part of this project, I photographed a cross-section of the migrant community of the Manning, producing portraits with the aim of starting a conversation and inviting viewers to look beyond facades. According to Art Gallery director Rachel Piercy, “Events such as these are an opportunity to promote harmony and inclusion by giving people a firsthand experience of cultural diversity in our area.”
