The Australian artist Charles Blackman was raised in a home without books. As a child, he wasn't read to. He first heard Alice in Wonderland read on a 'talking book' when he was an adult. His wife, Barbara, was going blind and she listened to Alice in Wonderland so he listened too. His audio experience of Lewis Carroll's story led to his Alice series.
David Moore (1927-2003); One of Australia's most renowned photographers & photojournalists, Moore captured some of the great iconic images of Australia. Less well known are his colourful abstract works from later in his career. Moore also travelled extensively working for Time-Life and National Geographic amongst others. image: Migrants arriving in Sydney – 1966
