“I am so proud to have achieved this.”
The project was the brainchild of Ms McLean and her husband Mark, who both have degrees in art from the University of Sydney.
“It’s something we’ve been doing for a long time,” Mr McLean said.
“We have this weird sort of obsession with the subject matter, so it was just something we wanted to try and push ourselves to.”
The couple have taken part in an online class that involved taking photos and sharing them on Facebook.
The idea was to help inspire people to explore their own interests and interests in photography.
“We thought the project was a great opportunity to get people interested in learning more about the subjects they’re photographing, and also give people the opportunity to ask questions about their subjects,” Ms Mclean said.
The couple are currently studying for a master’s degree in creative industries.
Mark McLean is an art historian and curator of photography at the Art Gallery of NSW.
Ms McLean says the project has given them a chance to experiment with different subjects, which has made the experience a lot more fun.
“As we get older, you realise that there are a lot of things that we do not do for fun, or that we can’t really express, so we want to try to get to more interesting subjects,” she said.
“And I think it’s made the process a lot better.”
