Today was the official launch of NEXT GENERATION: Solomon Islands after RAMSI, an exhibition of photographs made on commission for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in June/July 2017. The exhibition was officially launched at Parliament House in Canberra by the Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop, with special guest The Hon. Manasseh Sogavare, Prime Minister of Solomon Islands, on his State Visit to Australia.
I had the pleasure to walk Prime Minister Sogavare through the temporary exhibition at Parliament House and have a chat to him about the making of the work. The exhibition will now be moved to PhotoAccess, which opens on Thursday 17th August at 6pm. The exhibition will be opened on Thursday by Shaune Lakin, Curator of Photography at the National Gallery of Australia.
