NFP organisations like Uniting have been clients for about a decade with various campaigns from Fostering to projects about single mothers. This one was for AbilityLinks, (a subdivision of Uniting) who set up community workers know as Linkers. These Linkers mostly operate in regional towns and actively look to prevent social obstacles experienced by those challenged by disability or mental health. With writer Moyer Sayer Jones, I undertook a kind of road-trip to gather stories and images up the east coast to Sydney, taking in Eden, Bega and Wollongong amongst other places.

The real beauty of these sort of image library campaigns is that they merge with a personal experience not only with the wonderful characters encountered, but also incidences around the work which, in this case, lent itself to an “Australian gothic” tone.
