Renowned Australian Photographer Juno Gemes opened the exhibition.  Juno has a wonderful career working with Aboriginal people and was the official photographer at the National Sorry Day.  She has worked as a producer, writer, academic and is an absolute treasure.  Juno spoke with such heart  and understanding of my work.  Here she is lit by her iPad as she refers to her notes.

Crocheting with silver wire threaded with Swaroski Crystals has resulted in this work Sustain Me. This filmy sculpture tumbles from the ceiling onto the gallery floor, linking the internal world of my photographic images with the physical world.

Several of my models came along with friends and family and it was so good to see them talking to people in the gallery about the experience of modelling for these works.  These young people are fresh and shiny and full of possibilities.  Working with them was great fun and they were so generous with me.
