In search of Heidi Smith…

By Footloose 23 March 2009 13

I’m looking for any work by local photographer Heidi Smith.  She was quite big back in the eighties and took magnificent photos of Canberra as well as doing portraits/private commissions.

Having trawled the web for info, my results have been limited to a book with Brian Smith called ‘I Love Canberra’. I’ve also found a hardcover at the Art Gallery on the Tiwi Islands.  My beer damaged brain recalls a much larger body of work but I can’t seem to find anything.

Asking for a bit of help from the RA community. Anyone got anything tucked away or know where Heidi is now?

What’s Your opinion?

Also, in addition to the the spelling, doesn’t Heide Smith (note the e on the end) pronounce her name Hider?

As in, there’s a ‘hider’ in the bushes over there, I think it might be JoyceStanton.

Some of her work is hanging on the wall of Little Miss Venom’s orthodontist at Greenway. Lovely landscapes of the Canberra region circa 1980’s.

I have a copy of the book ‘Canberra – a personal perspective’ if you want it.

It is a 25cm paperback of black and white photos. Lovely – but I don’t have room for coffeetable books.

Cheers Sepi. It’s funny, the book I found at the library, I could have sworn had the spelling ‘Heidi’. Anyhoo…
Still, if anyones got prints they don’t want/need anymore or know where there is a cache of them around town, please let me know.

I think I read that she’s teaching at Girls’ Grammar now?

Funny, I was channel surfing on weekend and came across the Tiwi Islands AFL grand final being telecast.
