Street Photography

Museum of Sydney
8 December 2018 – 21 July 2019

Inspired by a candid street photograph taken of my mother in Prague in 1948, I became interested in this forgotten genre of photography. My mother’s album contained a handful of street photographs showing herself with friends in Europe during the 1940s, before she migrated to Australia. These images capture her at a particular time and moment in history before she fled communism. Finding other photographs of my mother with new Australian friends on the streets of this city was a starting point for a call out to the public to uncover and this unseen archive and to consider its history.

Open House reflects on notions of home ownership and its value within the current property market through a perfectly positioned, artist designed house nestled between the south headland and Bondi Beach. “Bathed in natural light and featuring polished timber floors this property is built on one of Sydney's most desirable plots of land. Compact and easily maintained, this is great place to start your kick off or add to your real estate portfolio!” (from catalogue statement)
