Dreamers, Makers, Shapers was undertaken to place greater awareness on Cardinia Shire’s wonderful local creatives; the value of artists to our communities, and to celebrate inclusion, diversity and creativity across Cardinia Shire.
During 2021, photography sessions involving Cardinia’s wonderful visual artists, musicians, performers, writers and artisans occurred in their home studios or at favourite outdoor locations. A lasting portfolio of each individual artist resulted. These images were also shared directly with the artists to use to extend their reach into the wider community.
“My photos deal with what it is to be human. They have helped me understand my own personal journey and to resonate that outward in a way that reflects the poetry of everyday, simple things. Through the production of a living diary this process of photographic documentation has allowed me to record my own life’s history. To live the life I’ve dreamed and to share that dream, my vision of the world, is the ultimate manifestation of a purpose driven, meaning rich life.”
