The photos here were part of a collaborative exhibition Just Nudes by The Brag Trade (that I was once a member of), at Dirty Linen Art Space, Bundaberg (Australia). The exhibition was late 2014. My focus for the exhibition was “In Praise of the Mature Nude,” which is also the over-arching theme of my Life Photography on this Art Blog.

The setting for the photo-shoot was the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery’s (BRAG) Artist-In-Residence apartment, on the first floor. I stayed in the apartment for 6 weeks in 2013.

It was a wonderful old-world setting, but fully refurbished maintaining most of its original Federation charm.

I was quite surprised that a rather senior couple in their eighties visited the exhibition and  bought the 2nd  photo here (silhouette, left). A week later my partner and I were invited to tea and biscuits at their home. A lovely interlude, and was great to see their  art collection, from their travels around the world. I was very honoured to have one of my works displayed on their wall (Please click on images to enlarge – some devices may rotate images).
