Pandemic Portfolio

 

Capturing the Goldfields story of 2020, this storybook is a snapshot of how life changed for everyday people.  Meet the Kalgoorlie-Boulder locals who took part in virtual live portrait sittings, sharing their personal experiences through candid chats as they were painted.   Full of colour, laughter, tears, and joy. The resilience of our people shines through to be preserved and shared with future generations.

 

I thrive on community engagement and capturing stories.  So when interactive community arts events were canceled… I felt compelled to capture the epic story that was unfolding around us.

 

During Pandemic Portfolio Portrait sitting video calls, friends, family, and the community were invited to drop in to say, ‘Hi’, just like they were wandering past a gritty, live street art performance. They listened in, asked questions, and simply hung out.

Subjects were chosen from a cross-section of our unique community to tell our story from an everyday perspective.
