Hi Paul, I’m Meagan. I’ve been encouraged to contact you as I have some black and white photos that I took at the Trance Plant event back when the Powerhouse was a ruin. My son is studying Creative Industries and showed these photos to his teacher who suggested you would be interested to see them.

 

In 1994 I was a photography student. Jay Younger was my lecturer and brought me and a few others along to document it. I might have photographed you! Not all of the photos are great, some with some dust and underexposed but I thought you would like to see them all anyway.

 

I hope they evoke some nice memories too.
