Recently arrived home from her adventures in The Americas, Adelaide photographer Alice Healy has vividly captured an enchanting collection of architectural vignettes – mostly doors & hatchways – some bright & beguiling, others faded & fractured; each with their own sense of history and beauty.
Titled ‘Cuban Doors’, the series beckons the viewer to ask, ‘What story lies here?’ or ‘What lies behind?’. ‘What must the inhabitant’s lives be like? Is this an inhabited place or does no one live here?’.
With their stonewashed façades, perhaps the answer suggests the latter?
However, the overarching response in every case - no matter the exterior & location - is that each was a source of life to be treasured.
As Peer Norsell, General Manager of Hilton Adelaide says, ‘The subject matter of Alice Healy’s collection and the doors of our hotel representing home, solace & protection for the traveller provided a poignancy that was not lost on me when Alice & I first spoke of Hilton Adelaide exhibiting her images.’
Alice Healy’s ‘Cuban Doors’ exhibit is being held in the Level 1 Gallery at Hilton Adelaide.
