The OzAsia Festival is our favourite festival in Adelaide. Well, South Australia IS the Festival State, so our number plates tell us, and this one marks the beginning of Spring. The Moon-lantern Parade was washed out for the second year in a row, it could not be moved because it coincides with the full moon. Pity.
Here are some photos taken in the Festival Theatre while we waited for “Yasukichi Murakami – through a distant lens”. A play about a conversation with a modern day photographer and Yasukochi Murakami, a photographer who lived in Broome from the early 20th century. He was interred during the second world war because he was Japanese, along with his wife and nine children. A shameful part of our history, but perhaps understandable in that time? The conversation spans time and follows a journey of discovery.
