Picture Her, a theatre show that spotlights the work of one of Ballarat’s first photographers, Daisy Harriet Llewelyn. The scene is set: a chance encounter with a pile of discarded glass plate photo negatives takes our sleuthing protagonist on an extensive investigation to uncover the identity of the unnamed artist they belong to. After sifting through public records and newspaper archives, the works are identified as those of photographer Daisy Harriet Llewelyn.
Through tall tales and true stories, the performance leads us on a retrospective journey through Daisy’s past, filled with happenstance, dead ends, loose ends and unexpected bends.
Written and performed by Marg Dobson. Directed by Maude Davey.
