PHOTOGRAPHY by Mandy Everton: 16th Feb to 17th March 2007

Mandy Everton here… Vietnamese adoptee living in Melbourne. Thought I’d let you know of a photography exhibition thats about to be in Brisbane that you or other interested people in Brissy (like IAFQ members) might be interested in seeing.

My sister Samantha Everton is a digital photography artist and last year won Australian Fifth Leica Documentary Photographer of the Year award. Her series of photos were in intercountry adoption and capture the images of a family living here in Melbourne who have a Chinese adopted daughter.

Details of exhibition:

The fifth Leica CCP Documentary Photography Award Winner Samantha Everton with her Intercountry adoption series. Logan Art Gallery (Located on the corner of Wembley Road and Jacaranda Avenue, Logan Central).
