Business Not Usual

2020. Bushfires, floods, then… the autumn of the pandemic. Three blows to our small businesses here in the Blue Mountains, the heartbeat of our communities. This project is a nod to them: the owners and the people working hard to keep going. A BIG thank you to all of them for allowing me in with my camera . Now as we are in a long, long lockdown in 2021, these photographs are more relevant and more poignant than ever.

Excellent news! The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre will host a pop-up exhibition of Business Not Usual in the lounge (public area) from 22 January – 20 March 2022 in conjunction with the annual Blue Mountains Portrait Exhibition. Meanwhile, see more below.
