Anni Turnbull's colour photographs give texture and vitality to the everyday. These photogrpahs were taken over a series of months in 2005 along the Cooks river .
Her works look beyond degradation and rehabilitation to shapes and textures, faces and personalities. Anni studied photography at Sydney College Of The Arts. At Parramatta Heritage Centre, her exhibition 'Out In The Gardens' investigated colour and texture of the area's gardens in 2002. Her interpretations of people and place are now part of a permanent exhibition in Parramatta Park. Her visual interpretations have been used extensively in advertising campaigns for strong social issues such as drugs and alcohol and safe sex. View Anni's collection here.
