This project was created in collaboration with Helene Thomas. In 2018 Helene and I co-founded the festival Stories in September. Helene is also the creator of the wonderful Wayfinder Storytelling Studio. The Hobart City Council approached us to produce work for their Mathers House Story Project. The films above are the result of this collaboration. Portrait photography by me combined with audio stories by Helene. Something a bit different.
“Through the sharing of stories, we celebrate the rich lives of elders in our communities. The experiences of older people can often be lost or overlooked. By gathering stories, knowledge is gained from their lived experiences.” Mathers House
