New photo-books

At PhotoAccess, Manuka Arts Centre, three new photo-books will be launched on Thursday, March 17 at 6pm. Life-Time Book 1. Coming of age by Greg Dickens is the first in a series of photo-books cataloguing his life and focuses on his experiences of Canberra student revelry and family intimacy against the backdrop of anti-Vietnam War protests and rallies to establish an Aboriginal embassy. Canberra Re-Seen, by multiple artists, curated by Wouter Van de Voorde, was an exhibition in 2021 that explored the idea of the city as a community of people, a built environment, and a physical landscape and the book selects and interweaves works from the project. EDGE, by Kayla Adams, looks at the urban and built environment of the Woden town centre through the idea of Edge City, an urban planning phenomenon where new, separate cities spring up around older, established ones. They will be launched by former diplomat Kyle Wilson. Register to attend here: The event will also be live-streamed here:
