MGA COLLECTION ARTIST
The photographs in this book are drawn from a number of ambitious projects to document all of the migrant communities that currently exist around Australia. When placed together they form an intimate composite snapshot of the new multicultural Australia to which few are fortunate enough to have access. To capture it Louise Whelan has gained the trust of many people who generously welcomed her to their homes schools commuinty events and places of worship. In short Louise Whelans portraits of others in New Settlers may also reveal an unexpectedly intimate portrait of herself.
