Perth Centre for Photography, Exhibition – Scented Gardens for the Blind

07.05.2012

The Perth Centre for Photography is located in a beautiful old building in Perth City

Scented Gardens for the Blind, an exhibition of photographic images on fabric combined with embroidery and crochet, opened at the Perth Centre for Photography on 27 June, 2012.

The series was inspired by novelist Janet Frame’s work of the same name.  This book deals with secret interior worlds and private spaces.  The results are works that evoke day dreaming, recollection and hint at a disturbing undertone.
