in the cemetery

I’m finally getting a chance to go through my photos from my road trip. I’m starting with my self-portraits for a couple of reasons that will be explained sometime soon.

This is one from a shoot I did at the Walhalla Public Cemetery. One of my favourite cemeteries, in the small town of Walhalla, in Victoria.

I visited there for the first time in 2005 after seeing a piece about the town on The Age website. I didn’t know they had a cemetery, let alone one set atop a hillside as you enter the town from the south. I gasped aloud when I saw it.

For those new to my photography, that may not be aware, I have something of an obsession with graveyards and cemeteries and photograph them at every opportunity. I am currently behind on editing photos taken at a number of cemeteries…

Now here’s a slightly different opening paragraph for me:

If you’re in Brisbane you should check out the first Artworkers Alliance members’ exhibition, Flower Power, taking place at their new gallery in the old Paddington Substation opening on March 26 and running until 17 April.

I have the above image taken on Lamma Island, i never promised you a rose garden and untitled #6261 included in the show, and it will be the first showing of my work in Brisbane!

Unfortunately I won’t be able to go to the opening, as I’ll be on a road trip driving from Melbourne back to Brisbane at the time, but can’t wait to see the show when I get back.

The address for the Paddington Substation is 150 Enoggera Tce, Paddington.

On a more familiar sounding note, if you’r…
