THE EDITORIAL IMAGE

The most thrilling of all photography related feelings has to be the receipt of a brief from a magazine art / photo-director. All other art or commercial obligations are pushed aside to make way for the potential honor of immortalising someone on the page.

It’s in this very way that the challenge came to contribute to a summer edition story on: “Prominent women with Grey Hair”. What initially sounded like a light-headed idea lead, as it often does, to an unforgettable encounter.

The reference and tribute to Whistler came naturally and felt appropriate for one of Australia’s greatest arts advocate.
