Indecent Exposure is an exhibition I have been anticipating for quite some time because it explores one of my favourite subjects from the National Portrait Gallery’s collection, Annette Kellerman.
Martin Schoeller’s Close-Up opened at the National Portrait Gallery in November 2010.
All the portraits in the NPG have a real human being hidden behind them. While they are unlikely to leap out at you and grab you by the ears, they all began as actual human lives. Someone, for whatever reason, chose to commemorate or preserve that person’s image, and thus the portrait was made.
This morning, I was becoming marvelously drenched from the pouring Canberra rain watching my buddy in the annual Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA ) graduation parade.
