On the road with Sophie Matterson
When I got the call from Australian Geographic to track down Sophie Matterson and...
Excited to have been announced as an Australian finalist in the 2015 Fremantle International Portrait Prize to be exhibited October 25th to November 1st at the Moores Contemporary Gallery with the winner announced on the night.
Got a call from the head steward who asked me to clean up my image before it was printed for the exhibition. Had to double check what he was referring to ‘Mate you’ve got a terribly dirty sensor‘
He mistook the flies for dirt.
All proceeds from the exhibition go to raising funds to Arthritis & Osteoporosis Western Australia. At this stage finalists are not allowed to share the chosen images until the official announcement but i’m happy with the chosen image from the judging panel and the story that goes alongside it.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that this gallery does contain images and voices of people who have died.
