Sophie comes to see her photo
We were thrilled to receive a visit from Sophie Deane and her family yesterday. Sophie took the (by now) well known photo of Julia Gillard that has been adopted for use on Ms Gillard’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
The Deane family generously donated the photo to the museum recently, and it has now been installed in a permanent display in the Prime Ministers of Australia gallery. Visiting from Melbourne during the school holidays, Sophie was delighted to see the image on public display, eagerly taking photos of it and her name in the credits, while TV and newspaper journalists buzzed around her photographing her joy.
