2015 Creative Fellow Ana Paula Estrada
For photographer and artist Ana Paula Estrada, the Siganto Foundation Fellowship offered an opportunity for research using historical materials in the John Oxley Library collections. Her interest in ageing, memories and storytelling has been realised in her book Memorandum. Ana Paula used collection materials to stimulate memories and discussions with six senior members of her inner Brisbane community. Their stories are told illustrated with personal photographs and memorabilia, Ana Paula’s portraits, and collection materials inviting the reader on a journey of contemplation.
