Overview

Camera Obscura moves through Greece, Italy and France, across to Japan and into the Australian suburbs, as its characters take journeys into themselves and away from their pasts.

A mother’s shattered view of the world is healed through her friendship with a blind man, and a mortician, unable to engage in life, finds solace among the dead. A couple plays out the final moments of a fading love, while an old man sets out to rekindle an enduring love from long ago.

Using a poet’s ear and a photographer’s eye, Kathryn Lomer infuses her writing with a distinctive irony and an intuitive understanding of the human experience.
