Hometowns of Italo-Australians. Photographs by Jane Burton Taylor
Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday

This exhibition of gentle lyrical photographs takes us on an unusual journey through the original hometowns of Italo-Australians. Presenting quiet moments in the daily life and rituals of these towns, from the Veneto to Sicily, the photographs are at once idiosyncratic and universal. Like film stills they simultaneously capture private moments and suggest a story. The photographs evoke a strong sense of familiarity and place, even for those who have not been to Italy. Most of us have memories - immediate or inherited from past generations - of other shores. These images explore that dimension of other places and the origins which define who we are as contemporary Australians.
