Mary MacKillop Aged Care

When Mary MacKillop Aged care in Hawthorn was soon to transition into a new service provider, I was given the unique role to document its special culture. I spent two days moulding into the daily happenings, documenting the beautiful relationships between staff and residents. This was a truly treasured role for me, to be able to engage with people respectfully, indulge in conversations and give back to the staff who give so much. My photographs were played as a slideshow to staff on the ‘final day’, reportedly ‘there wasn’t a dry eye in the house’.
