North of the Border : Stories from the 'A Matter of Time' project


Product Description

‘I love this state – do not get me wrong. I love Queensland to bits. I don’t want to live anywhere else in the world. But at that time we were four million years behind everything else, everyone else.’ - Lyn Fraser

Since the end of the Joh Bjelke-Petersen State government, conditions for LGBTIQ identified Queenslanders have improved but remain a tenuous arrangement. As the struggle for rights continues, ''North of the Border'' uses documentary photography and first person narratives to tell the intimate stories of eight lesbians who found themselves existing outside of the ‘norm’, and how that experience informs how they identify as Queenslanders today. This is a beautiful and moving record of the lives and loves of women with experiences ranging through marriage, activism, spirituality, performance, family - all accompanied by photographs from their past and present.

''North of the Border'' is a culmination of the 'A Matter of Time' project, Heather Faulkner's trans-media documentary project and PhD research.

Heather Faulkner (PhD) is a documentary maker and photographer whose research explores identity, place and belonging. She grew up in South Alberta, where homosexuality was not illegal but considered immoral and unwelcome. Her professional career as a photojournalist and picture editor has seen her work published internationally. She lectures in photography at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
