Exhibition catalogue essay by Shane Breynard, Director Canberra Museum and Galleries
'Canberra has a thriving art community and the city is home to many creative and artistically driven people. 25 of these hard working individuals agreed to open their doors to share with me their creative spaces and ideas in photographs. By using a 1950s Polaroid Land Camera and traditional pull-apart instant film, I wanted to bring a level of intimacy and sincerity to the moments we captured together. As an artist myself working within this community (both personally and professionally), I see these people not only as subjects, but also as my creative peers and collaborators.'
