For photographer Tina Milson, her portraits of Goulburn locals reflect the community's spirit and represents the contribution of the locals towards building it.
Her 'Portraits on Main' project will exhibit portraits of those who give back to the community on the empty shopfronts, retail stores and government buildings to name a few on the main street.
Over 200 locals will be featured through these portraits and Tina is looking forward to including people from all walks of life in this project.
Photographs of the locals and those aged 50 years and above, that were a part of her 'Art of Ageing' exhibition, will also be a part of the project which will open on November 13.
"I am in the process of taking portraits of the locals who have made contributions to the community and sharing their stories with everyone. We will also highlight that our country town is a multicultural place with people from over the world living here," she said.
Places like Rocky Hill War Memorial and Museum and wetlands will also be highlighted as part of the project.
The project recently received a funding boost of $10,000 from Goulburn Mulwaree Council as part of its financial assistance budget. Council feels that the project also has the potential to be replicated in Marulan and Tarago, with planning for this underway.
"It is a huge contribution towards the project. The major expense is for printing as I want the quality of the work being printed to be similar to that of an art gallery and should be in a condition that it can travel to other towns on exhibition," she said.
"The Goulburn Chamber of Commerce has played a very important role in the project and we were able to secure a $3000 funding boost from NSW Government's Country Art Support Program last year."
If someone wants to be a part of the project or know of someone who is over 50 years and has contributed to the community, get in touch with Tina Milson via email email@example.com.
