Shaune Lakin, Senior Curator of Photography at National Gallery of Australia on' Next Generation' exhibition

I was honoured to have Shaune Lakin, Senior Curator of Photography from the National Gallery of Australia, open my current exhibition 'Next Generation: Solomon Islands after RAMSI' at Huw Davies Gallery, PhotoAccess, in Canberra on Thursday 17 August. It's not every day that a senior curator talks about your work to a public audience, so it was a very special occasion for me both professionally and personally.

With his permission, Shaune's opening speech was recorded and transcribed. I intended to publish it here to archive and also to make his speech accessible for those who could not make the opening reception, but would like to read what was said.
