Community Memories

Our narrative is linked to the images, memories or records of our experiences that we keep.

“We tell ourselves stories in order to live…” — American essayist and novelist, Joan Didion.


Joan declares as she opens her essay, The White Album, before declaring that our narrative is linked to the images, memories or records of our experiences that we keep - the mementos we hold dearly.

Photographer Morgane Cazaubon was kindly welcomed into the Heyfield and Districts Museum, and family homes, to document the milestones and revelry that her community values fondly. Very quickly, she unravelled a story that is filled with festivities throughout the area’s history. Given Gippsland’s many unique towns across the entire region, it’s safe to say, our current tale is built on celebrations.
