A Matter of Time

A documentary project that crosses the boundaries of time, politics and prejudice to tell the stories of eight Queensland lesbians.

A Matter of Time investigates the experiences of eight lesbians who lived in Queensland during the more socio-politically conservative mid-to-late-twentieth-century and how they interpret that experience to have informed their lives today. Since the end of the Joh Bjelke-Petersen government, conditions for LBGTIQ-identified Queenslanders have improved but remain a tenuous arrangement.

As the struggle for rights continues, it is important to accrue a historical understanding and of the experiences of those who found themselves existing outside of the 'norm.' Some led double-lives, some hid in remote pockets of far north Queensland, while others lived openly, in spite of implied consequences.

Heather Faulkner Biography

Heather Faulkner is a documentary photographer and recent immersive-storytelling convert. In her twenty-year mainstream practice as a photojournalist, she has worked concurrently on addressing the histories and realities of marginalised queer communities around the world via documentary photography. These have largely been personal stories. In fact, she became a photographer as a way of understanding her place in the queer community and the alternative family that resulted when she came out in Vancouver, Canada in the late 80s.

A Matter of Time is an extension of this life-long investigation, and is part of her doctoral research at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
A portrait ('Mel,') from this project was shortlisted for the 2012 National Photographic Portrait Prize and is currently in a travelling exhibition around Australia until 2013.

Faulkner is the convenor of the ePhotojournalism major of the Bachelor of Digital Media at QCA, Griffith University, Gold Coast.
