I have know Sand Edwards for forties years, we were very very young photographers, and met at the Australian Centre of Photography, in those early days, the only real hub for photographers in Sydney. Years later we shared a Studio in Chippendale.
Sand has always had a unique and self assured look and presence. I’ve wanted to feature her on this blog since I started it. We managed half a day and only the tip of her wardrobe. It rained all day, hence wet hair and no hair and make-up to jump in and dry it…sorry Sand.
The backdrop for some of the shots is the wonderful exhibition El Anatsui at Carriage works and the work of some talented Canberra photographers called The Poetic Lens at a space in the Central Plaza.

Hi Lorrie and Sandy
I am so pleased to see that you got this done its fantastic and captures sandy’s love of life and clothes. Beautiful shots Lorrie.
Beautiful pix, beautiful subject, so much joie de vivre. XX
Thank you for the comments, Sand is a dream subject and was worth the wait…a year….we will be doing her pant looks when we can find a window. As you will see from today’s blog I am in the hunt for more subjects I would like Style profiles to be a major part of the blog. Also if any of the areas covered interest you subscribe…I won’t bother you with anything other than the post of the day. See you soon …..Lorrie
Love Sandie Edwards. Love Lorrie Graham. Met them both thru the same place – thanks STC of the ’80s
Sandy always surprises – when she walks into the room – her clothes, energy + beauty make her shine….she is ageless….
