AN INVITATION FOR SELECT AUSTRALIAN VETERANS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE RISING SPIRIT OF ANZAC PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION
Monday, 28 September 2009

Released on behalf of Sharyn Meade, Principal photographer, Rising Spirit of ANZAC

I am now working on the next project, the Rising Spirit of ANZAC for it's opening at the Australian Embassy in Washington next ANZAC Day and would appreciate your help again. I am seeking recommendations and introductions, if appropriate, to veterans who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam and of course, as Peacekeepers. I will need to photograph and interview participating veterans in November.

The format of the exhibition follows that of the Peacekeepers exhibition. I simply need one to two hours of their time to conduct a short interview and take their photograph, in their home or at a central location. I will also need digital images copied from their own photographs. Please use this link to view the exhibition website: Peacekeepers - Australia's Other Heroes

The Rising Spirit of ANZAC exhibition is the auspicing project for four photographic exhibitions I am completing focussing on the individual stories of our Australian service men and women: The Rising Spirit Of ANZAC; The New ANZUS Legacy; Peacekeepers – Australia’s Other Heroes; and Bomber Command.

The Rising Spirit of ANZAC will feature at the Australian Embassy in Washington, other consular sites and open in Australia at the Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance. Then I want to send it on tour.

I would appreciate your responding as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for your consideration. I look forward to your reply.
