Pictures of You: A community photographic exhibition
Saturday 15 August - Sunday 11 October
“I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures
Are all I can feel”
Pictures of You - The Cure
The COVID-19 pandemic has turned life on its head, separating family, friends and colleagues.
Bathurst Regional Art Gallery invited residents of the Central West community to share a black-and-white photographic portrait of someone significant to them, taken during these strange times.
The photographs and stories form Pictures of You, a community exhibition that reflects the relationships that have sustained us and records different people’s experience of this momentous event.
Lyrics: Song title: Pictures of you | Band: The Cure | Album: Disintegration | Released: 1989. Songwriters: Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'Donnell, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams.
