Enlighten at the National Portrait Gallery

I’ll write more about the National Portrait Gallery another time, but this is a chance for me to share some of the images that were displayed on its façade as part of this year’s Enlighten exhibition in Canberra, Australia’s national capital.

I found these images a bit puzzling. They were colourful and animated, but they didn’t seem to relate to any of the images I know are contained within the Portrait Gallery.

Another image was very interesting, but didn’t really make sense either and all my shots of it were too fuzzy to make it worth posting them.

There was a fantastic ‘rolling’ image that was filled with glimpses of portraits I know. But they flicked by so quickly I wasn’t able to get a decent photo of any of them. And believe me, I tried.

I do enjoy this gallery. And it’s worth visiting often because the portraits get rotated regularly. You never know who you might ‘see’.

By the way, I didn’t add captions because I don’t know enough about any of the images to make a sensible comment.

    I too found these images puzzling but thank you for posting them. You seem to be getting out and about more than usual at the moment.

      Hi Louise, we’re often out and about, but not always taking pics. I’m trying to remember to take the camera on every trip.
