This just in:

Heide Smith will be signing copies of her new photography book A Portrait of Canberra and of Canberrans 1979-2012.

As part of the Canberra Centenary celebrations, Heide has published A Portrait of Canberra and of Canberrans 1979-2012. The images in the book record a third of the lifespan of Australia’s National Capital; it’s buildings, monuments, institutions, and it’s people.

Heide has been photographing Canberra for 34 years. She has previously published four books of photographs of Canberra.

Heide has done some amazing photos over the years. Can’t wait to see what she has in her new book.

Wonderful work as always from Heide.

Shame this work would be considered so “conservative” and untrue to Canberra according to Ian Warden:

‘Conservative Canberra painters and photographers are preoccupied with the city’s monuments, its pretty parrots and mist-enhanced lakes.
Their Canberra has, eerily, no suburbs at all.’

Chalk up another a-hole point to Warden’s tally.
