Judy, 2012

Judy Cassab and Charles Blackman are now elderly, frail and suffering dementia, yet their skill, talent and desire to draw continue to burn brightly. Each Wednesday morning these great Australian artists get together at Judy’s home for a drawing session with a nude model. Although now they do not interact much with the world at large, they work contentedly in their own creative worlds. I was privileged to photograph them at one of these sessions.
