On photography and Fred Hollows

This is an alert for the launch of the Fred Hollows travelling photography exhibition that opens tomorrow at Waverley Library in Sydney. Waverley Library opens at 10am on weekdays. The exhibition will spend a fortnight at Waverley Library and then move to selected libraries in New South Wales for the coming 12-18 months. The itinerary for the Fred Hollows photo exhibition is now available.

The exhibition highlights the life and work of the late Fred Hollows, a former Australian of the Year, and a genuine good guy in the fight against avoidable blindness and social injustice. The Fred Hollows Foundation in Australia, where I now work, is dedicated to following in Fred’s footsteps to improve the sight and health outcomes of Indigenous Australians, and for people in the developing world.

Th exhibition is part of The Fred Hollows Foundation’s commitment to educating the Australian public, including school and community groups, about the importance of development issues at home and overseas. More information about The Fred Hollows Foundation and schools can be found on the Focus website.

I can wholeheartedly recommend the display to you as both an educational and photographic experience.
