Light Years
Light Years presents works drawn from the archive of the late Lin Richardson, a new acquisition to the PhotoAccess collection. Richardson’s works capture fragments of Canberra during the early 1970s, documenting festivals, protests, as well as aspects the photographer’s own personal life. Reflecting on the slippery truth and intimacy of the photographic image, six contemporary artists present new work in response to the archive. Artists: Madeline Bishop, Rowan Conroy, Hayley King, Mark Mohell, Scot Newman, Arthur (Lin) Richardson and Genevieve Swifte. Catalogue
