This exhibition by Brisbane-based photographer and lecturer Dr Jenny Carter-White, interrogates the family album as a site where autobiography and memory coexist - a compendium of images old and new that assist in shaping identity. She states: Photographs have the ability to carry images of our past from one time and place to another. They inform us and give us an understanding of what life was like during earlier times. These images carry traces of the people they document and the experiences they may have had. Precious moments, memories of loved ones and experiences of another time are held within the frame of a photograph, travelling through time to be in this place where we are now. The imprints from these photographs are left on our memories and will influence who we are for the rest of our lives. Community, place, remembering, family, history and environment will be palpable themes for visitors to reflect on in this distinctive exhibition.
