Head On into Centennial Park

As part of the HeadOn Festival, there is an outdoor exhibition on the theme of ‘faces’ by members of the ACMP. This is set amongst the trees in Centennial Park and presents some interesting stories whispering in the breeze. Here are two of the images by ‘moi’: Neil and Walter.

Neil I shot as part of a series of real farmers in Australia. He was a third generation dairy farmer in Broke and is standing in a vineyard planted by his son on part of the property his Grandfather settled in 1905. Neil served as mayor of Singleton for 25 years, and I like to think that the spirit of community that earned him a Centenary Medal in 2003 can be seen in his twinkling smile.

Walter: I shot a project of ‘everyday heroes’ in NY a few years ago, showing some everyday people that had done something bigger than themselves. My challenge was to depict the essential something that made them extraordinary in my images.  Walter was a caring man that rose to the challenge to impact the lives of thousands of minorities for better through starting ‘Workshops in Business Organization’ for Blacks and Hispanics in New York in the 60’s. After saying ‘somebody’ should do this for them, he changed it to “I” should do this for them.
