Picture Her is a theatre show by Marg Dobson that takes the audience on an investigative performance adventure unearthing a multitude of unknown, forgotten and uncelebrated Australian women photographers from 1850 to the present day. The scene is set: a chance encounter with a pile of discarded glass plate photo negatives sends our sleuthing protagonist on an extensive investigation to uncover the identity of the mystery artist. After sifting through public records and newspaper archives, the works are identified as those of photographer Daisy Harriet Llewelyn, who worked in Ballarat in the 1920s.
