A companion work to Fertile Soil, commissioned by Fremantle Arts Centre.


Elvis Richardson has created a new work in response to Christine Gosfield’s work in Fertile Soil, 9/11…..defining home. Gosfield’s work shows 360 portraits of Fremantle people that she photographed in the days following 9/11. Gosfield herself recalls at the time being driven by ‘an almost visceral urge to solidify the Fremantle community’.


Inspired by Michael Apted’s acclaimed Seven Up series, Melbourne-based Richardson who was living in New York at the time, has tracked down and invited those people photographed by Gosfield to reflect on these momentous events, 7 years later.
