Mathoura photographer Zowie Crump will capture the unheard stories of local people in a public art project, which will span across 11 towns in southern NSW.
Miss Crump is one of nine photographers selected to work on ‘Faces of the South West’, a large-scale public art portraiture project run by South West Arts.
Photographers have taken images of between eight and 10 local personalities, including irrigation scheme workers in Mathoura and a boy from Barham, which will be exhibited in paste-up and street art installations in towns across the region.
Miss Crump has photographed Jack Pell, Gwyneth McCallum, Jim Preston and Robert Watson as part of the project, which aims to explore the day-to-day realities of life in small towns and share people’s aspirations for the future.
‘‘It was a great project to be involved in,’’ she said.
‘‘I loved taking people’s portraits and letting them have a way to share their story.
‘‘I look forward to seeing the photos up on the walls. I am sure it will create a lot of interest in the community.’’
Mathoura, Moama and Barham will host three to four temporary ‘paste-up’ exhibitions, which will be installed using flour and water painted on public walls before being ‘pasted’ up for a few months.
Images and stories can also be viewed online at www.southwestarts.com.au from Monday.
