Murrays Cottage

Following their 2005 residency, photographers Dean Sewell and Tamara Dean plan to further develop and continue their “contemporary vision of a forgotten time”. Tracing the footsteps of photographer Beaufoy Merlin who documented the township of Hill End in 1872 – 1873, Sewell and Dean will use early photographic techniques to create a comparable aesthetic to the visual effect of time and age. Current photographic equipment will be utilised to create a contemporary sense of the town, creating a body of work connecting the people of the town today with the historical context of past inhabitants.
