Anna White’s photographic technique involves strategically lining up a figure and background behind a book cover so that there appears to be an overlapping of life and art; interrupting the expected with surprise and humour. This series features local members of the community juxtaposed with books from the Yarra Libraries' collection.
#Bookface was exhibited at Bargoonga Nganjin from 8 November 2019 – 31 January 2020
