The youth photography project Sarsfield Snaps reached another milestone recently, with the distribution of a twenty-four-month calendar featuring photos taken by the young project participants.
Images of favourite pets, farm animals, resurgent vegetation, and local landscapes were chosen by the young photographers from their many hundreds of photos and were curated by one of the participants herself.
The Sarsfield Snaps project began in early 2020 as an initiative of several Sarsfield residents as a way to present young people with a positive and fun focus after the bushfire which took away more than seventy houses and affected two hundred properties. It is being supported by Fujifilm Australia, Gippsland Lakes Complete Health, iEARN Australia and Bushfire Recovery Victoria.
An exhibition of more than fifty large-format photographs still graces the fence of the Bushfire Recovery Hub in School Road, Sarsfield.
The calendar has been distributed to all Sarsfield residents and is available for purchase from the Sarsfield Snaps team, Bairnsdale Art Gallery, Bruthen Art, Information and Heritage Centre, The Bushfire Recovery Hub at Sarsfield, and several local offices and shops.
