Williamstown photographer Michelle Grace Hunder has premiered her latest project ‘Her Sound, Her Story’, a documentary film collaboration with longtime friend and Director Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore, which follows the photographic portrait series in 2016.
Showcasing more than 40 women over five decades in Australian music, ‘Her Sound, Her Story’ is an intimate conversation unveiling the personal experiences, histories and the significant social impact women have within the Australian music industry.
The initial concept for ‘Her Sound, Her Story’ came from observing the constant conversation about gender inequality and imbalance within the music industry and the arts in general.
This one-of-a-kind all-female narrative is brimming with individuality, strength and creativity. This bold, unflinching take on the issues at heart extends beyond music industry, and asks “where do we want women’s voices to sit in the world today?”
Beloved artists including Tina Arena, Jen Cloher and Mojo Juju discuss their personal journeys as they reflect on their collective and unspoken struggles of being a woman in a male dominant industry.
