The 100 Views of Canberra offers a vast range of perspectives, skill levels, and aesthetic concerns and represent a cross section of contemporary Canberra life. T he name “100 Views of Canberra” sounds familiar to you, it is. The title is a take on the famous series called “100 views of Mount Fuji” by Japanese Ukiyo-e Katsushika Hokusa and it implies that Canberra can be viewed from many points of view in order to express an infinite variety of moods and nuances.
Another artist in the exhibition was the conceptual photo-artist Katherine Griffiths:
