Event Series Event Series: Peter Solness Projection Walking Tour

Peter Solness Projection Walking Tour

Fri 7 June at 6:00 pm


Led by Beaufoy Merlin impersonator Peter Solness and Fiona Howle, as Mary Beyers, this is a moving projection walking tour.

With a battery-powered projector Peter will be honouring this 19th Century master photographer, during a 45-minute travelling slide show, taking people on a journey around the town, projecting images onto the walls of buildings Merlin photographed 150 years earlier.

Artist and collaborator Fiona Howle will present a narrative as we go, of the challenges of life in the goldfields as a woman.
It was Henry Beaufoy Merlin who took most of the images in the UNESCO listed Holterman Collection, transforming himself from a theatrical showman into an astonishingly prolific wet plate photographer.
