Ginette Snow’s exhibition ‘Just Families’ has generated plenty of interest this Festival. It takes us inside the daily lives of ordinary families with same sex parents. Ginette wants viewers to look at the similarities between these families and heterosexual families rather than looking at the one difference. These black and white documentary photographs show that the qualities of family life in these families are just like any other loving family. This body of work begs the question as to why gay and lesbian couples do not have the same rights as all other Australian citizens.
Jon Lewis is a master of classic photography, teacher and activist. He first exhibited in 1974. He was a member of Sydney’s “Yellow House” in the early 70’s, went on to make experimental video with “Bush Video”, and in 1977 was a founder of Greenpeace Australia, which led a successful campaign to end the slaughter of whales in that country. His interests are reflected in his photography, and when not on the hop, photographing or teaching, lives in the Southern Highlands of NSW, where he schemes for sponsorship, reads, writes and hunts wild pigs.
