    Ready Get Set: Glenorchy Greater Hobart

    Three weeks into the Tassie trip my regular photographic partner, Brett Monaghan, turned up in Hobart – staying with us for the short season at the Derwent Entertainment Centre (the DEC); and then onto our visit further south to the Franklin. As he had done in Ernanbella, with Ngapartji Ngapartji, his task was to document the production on and off stage, including – at his request – a set of portraits. Here are just some of the portraits he took in Hobart over the first couple of days on tour with Big hART’s This Is Living.

    Note to readers: so much to report from the Tasmania trip, but also catching up in Sydney with a show a night. Whew…And have been lined up to interview one of the most amazing Australians I have ever met for the National Library - war correspondent for the Times (UK), among many other jobs, Murray Sayle. One of only two writers ever to have a whole issue of the New Yorker devoted to one of his stories (on Hiroshima). Very This is Living: after being parachuted into Vietnam and witnessing live the Bloody Sunday riot in Ireland, bumping into Che Guevara in the South American jungle, etc, he’s now got Parkinson’s Disease and stuck in a nursing home – bored off his brain. Still has all his wits of course. I will be his ‘taper dude’. More soon…..
