M.33 – Peter Milne: A Day in the Life of Rowland S Howard, launched by Clinton Walker

  • Artspace Ground Floor, Stand G29 (map)

In 1977 Peter Milne was 17 and the legendary Australian guitarist Rowland S Howard was 18. For several months they collaborated together on a number of photo sessions. Although many of the images taken in that period were lost or damaged, a number of remarkable photographs have survived and have been drawn together to form this book. 

Peter Milne writes in the introduction: 'I took up photography around this time and we began a busy period of experimental photo sessions during which I was learning how to use cameras while Rowland was learning how to pose for them ... The work is a patchy, scratched-up document that shows visible signs of age and neglect but perhaps this is the one absolute inevitability of history and memory — it’s always going to be fragmentary'.

A Day in the Life of Rowland S Howard will be launched by Clinton Walker, writer on Australian music and popular culture, and Peter Milne will be signing books.
