Everyone and His Dog - Photographs of Judith Ahern

Location:   Tamworth Regional Gallery, Upper Level, 466 Peel Street, Tamworth

In 1984, photographer Judith Ahern came to Tamworth with a 35mm Leica camera and a box of film, not suspecting that this first trip was the beginning of a four year photographic obsession with country music. Her work documents the public and private face of Australian country music and preserves special moments from Tamworth's bustling Country Music Festival.
