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.
