This reflective set of images is an intimate portrait by an outstanding photographer. David Roberts is a local, fine-art photographer. He  works primarily with film and traditional view cameras.

David’s work is collected by the National Portrait Gallery, the National Library of Australia and the State Library of Victoria. His portraits include the Dalai Lama, Geoffrey Rush and John Cleese.
