Portraits of Elders
Series of photographic portraits

Portraits of Elders presents eight portraits of Kandos elders. The people figured in these photographs have either lived their entire lives in the Kandos– Rylstone area or have important long-standing relationships to the area. These elders have witnessed the growth and transformation of the town. They are descendants of the local Dabee tribe, immigrants who moved here after World War II, and local characters everyone in town will recognise. These portraits are records and a paying of respect to the elders of the Kandos–Rylstone area and to the important part they have played in its history.
