CATHY LAUDENBACH: GUNDAROO ROOMS

13 October - 11 November 2017

Twenty years ago I lived in Gundaroo: a small village north of Canberra.  I spend many hours with some of the older residents of the village.  I would visit regularly with my camera recording both them and their homes. Homes that were old and lived in.  Homes that told stories of families, history, place and country Australia.  Matt Crowe, the local publican was born in this house more than 80 years before.

Time appeared to stand still in the rooms, although now these rooms no longer exist.  The inhabitants have died and with time the rooms have been modernised and renovated.

This exhibition of images of place recall a time in Australia's recent past.
