BOOROWA - Population 1200 - One Day in a Small Town
Part of the Head On Photo Festival 2014
Boorowa is situated in the wheat sheep belt of South West NSW. There is a population of about 1200 including outlying villages. A good friend’s family have lived in the area for six generations and it was their connection to community and extended family that gave me the opportunity to spend time with some of the wonderful people living in this small town.
For Pine Street Gallery I have created a multimedia photographic installation . Playing with scale enables you the viewer to feel the larger than life personalities. While projected footage of the landscape puts you right there. Immersed in the space that these people inhabit but by no means are dwarfed by.
Geographically speaking Boorowa is indeed a small town but in every other aspect it was to me, larger than life. The people there made a lasting impression on me as an artist and as an individual. The generosity, kindness and openness of the people I met there was an experience I will never forget.
My thanks to the people of Boorowa and the young people who shared their day with me.
This is a FREE event Proudly sponsored by Vision Graphics.

Official Head On Photo Festival listing
Regardless of where we are in the world, and regardless of the differences or distance between us – the landscape unites us. These differences may be represented through elements such as time, space, atmosphere or emotions, and will depend largely on our visual and psychological reading of the landscape before us. Presented by FIER Institute – Around the World in 14 days, features work by seven contemporary Australian and International photographers. This exhibition offers a unique insight into how each photographer reads the landscape – visually and psychologically. Presenting photographs created in Australia, Asia, New Zealand, USA and Colombia, this exhibition asks us to consider how elements effecting the landscape unites us together – regardless of our differences or the distances that occur between us. It also seeks to ask you as our audience, how you relate to the poetic fragments presented by our imagery from your own memory or experience, about your own sense of place.
