Lismore Lantern Festival



Lismore showed what a truly strong and resilient community it is after producing an unforgettable lantern parade. The parade went ahead this year after a mammoth effort by Jyllie Jackson and her team of volunteers who helped with recovery of the flood-damaged lanterns for the festival.

The damage left on the beautiful Pegasus shone as a proud reminder of how the community of Lismore have risen up and moved forward after the flood.

I have been making images for as long as I can remember. As a teenager, I became enthralled with the process of photography, spending many, many joyful hours in the darkroom. At 15, I won a young film-makers' award in my home town of Fremantle. This sparked a lifelong journey into 16mm film, video production, graphic design, and finally digital imaging. Today I am the chief technician and co-owner of PowerMax Computers, the northern rivers' Apple Authorised Service Provider and Reseller where I'm responsible for keeping the entire region's contingent of Apple devices running smoothly.
