Sirens of Gunnedah is a magical photographic exhibition celebrating 52 women from Lane Cove’s Sister City, Gunnedah in north-west New South Wales.
Gunnedah photographers Alyssa Barwick and Marie Low had a vision of creating an alternate world for women of the Shire during the heart-breaking time of the drought. They set about photographing women of all ages and all walks of life and came up with 44 conceptual portraits featuring everything from a breast cancer survivor in a vivid pompom creation to two friends as Picasso Sirens and a recreation of the powerful Metropolis robot. The idea stirred the imagination of Gunnedah, and the two photographers soon had a Siren squad – a team of professional hair stylists, make-up artists and local businesses, who unselfishly dedicated their time and talents towards making Sirens of Gunnedah a reality.The exhibition opened at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery in late 2019 and was nominated for an Australia Day Award in Gunnedah.
Proudly presented by Lane Cove Council.
