Finalist in the Maggie Diaz Photography Prize for Women 2015

I am pleased to be included among the finalists of the Maggie Diaz Photography Prize for Women with a portrait I made of my partner, Rhenny. The portrait will be on display this month as part of the Maggie Diaz Projects at Brightspace in St. Kilda.

Maggie Diaz Projects (Exhibition - Prize - Installation)

Opening Thursday 3 September 6-9pm
Brightspace

St. Kilda

"Maggie Diaz Projects features an exhibition of photographs taken in the City of Port Phillip area from the 1960s to the 1980s, along with an installation of photographs that capture the essence of the Diaz Collection, which date back to Chicago in the 1950s. 90 year old Diaz remains a St. Kilda resident and Brightspace is proud to have initiated this project, which celebrates her as a true artist and trailblazer for Australian women photographers. 
The MDPPfW has attracted an overwhelming response! Finalists will be exhibited as part of Maggie Diaz Projects."
