The majority of the exhibitions will be held in non-traditional locations such as cafes and wineries throughout the Noarlunga Council area.

Both women have had careers as media photographers in Queensland, NSW and South Australia, spanning several decades, collecting several awards for their photographic work along the way. Sally has also worked as a darkroom technician and lecturer in photography. Suzanne has a background in journalism and worked in the arts industry for many years. Her work is held in corporate, government and private collections throughout Australia and overseas. They have both taken photographs for their own interest drawing inspiration from their experiences of telling stories without words.

"Stories from Near and Far" features images from the Noarlunga area as well as Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and regional Victoria. "Our exhibition invites you to experience humour, stimulating thought or silent commentary," said Suzanne. She also has included photographic work in the Atkins Photographic Artist's exhibition, "Light" at Red Poles, McMurtrie Road, McLaren Vale from Saturday, 30 August until Sunday 12 October.
