Girt by Sea


I visited the wonderful exhibition “Girt by Sea” on Sunday afternoon. This is an art (as opposed to documentary) exhibition of 100 large aerial photographs taken by Tony Hewitt and Denis Glennon of the coastline of Australia. It is a “must see” exhibition while it is on here in Perth. The exhibition is on from 25 September to 13 October at Central Park, 152-158 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000. Open times are 10am to 5.30pm weekdays and 10-4 on Saturday 13th (the last day!)

Tony and Dennis were sponsored by Canon for this project which involved hiring a light aircraft and 2 pilots to circumnavigate the coast of Australia to experience and bring new meaning to the words “Girt by Sea” from our national anthem.

Run, don’t walk to this exhibition – you will not be disappointed! Prints are for sale and there is also a beautifully presented book available. I am planning on visiting it again if possible sometime during this next week.
