Annabelle Gaspar is a dark horse. Not only is she an awesome DJ who can keep folk dancing like demons til dawn, she’s also an incredible photographer. Her current focus is underwater photography and she has donated a really powerful work of art to the silent auction that we are holding as part of our benefit ‘Beyond Puberty Blues’.
Entitled ‘Falling Up’ the photograph reminds us of the confusion and turmoil that can engulf people with mental health issues. In the ocean of life, some people lose their way and things that were once down can suddenly seem as if they are up. Just like a rip can carry a swimmer out to sea, so too can depression drag a vulnerable soul astray.
As we celebrate all that has become cult about the film ‘Puberty Blues’, we remember the beautiful Jad Capelja, imortalised on celluloid as ‘Sue’, and how she tragically lost her way back home.
