MOV­ING POR­TRAITS: A for­mer Noosa River camp­ing ground that for many years was an un­of­fi­cial refuge for those “do­ing it tough” is the fo­cus of a pho­to­graphic exhibition open­ing at the USC Art Gallery on May 16. The exhibition, called River’s Edge, presents 56 pho­to­graphs by Coast artist Kim Guthrie of the Johns Land­ing Camp­ing Ground, just north of Lake Cooroibah, and of the var­i­ous peo­ple who stayed there. Be­fore the prop­erty was sold to Noosa Re­gional Coun­cil in 2017, it had been run as a low-cost pri­vate camp­ing ground since the 1950s. In ad­di­tion to wel­com­ing campers, it had many long-term res­i­dents and was a sanc­tu­ary for marginalis­ed peo­ple and those at risk of home­less­ness. The exhibition will re­main on show un­til Satur­day, June 29.
