‘A Dying Part’ is a documentation of barbershops around Melbourne, all run by first generation Australians from Italy, Greece and Lebanon. They seem to somehow be frozen at a moment in the past but also refer to an age-old tradition. Many of the techniques used are becoming extinct – such as using cotton thread to remove small facial hairs and shaving with the cutthroat razor. There is a new wave of modern day barbershops emerging but this series focuses on those of a time gone past. Louise photographed this series for its aesthetic quality but also considers it a social history of Melbourne here and now.

Louise is also screening her multimedia work on an asylum seeker of Hazara origin. With this work, Louise aimed to create some understanding of  a refugee’s plight in Australia.
