Summary

The photographs were commissioned by Peter Weiss in 1993 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Weiss Corporation. They are portraits of Australians who are prominent in various fields, including the arts and the fashion industry. Some of the subjects have worked with Peter Weiss, some are friends and some were included because he believed they had contributed to Australian life and culture. The portraits are all formally composed - each sitter is wearing a black polo-necked sweater, and the focus is on the hands and face. The portraits were exhibited in 1993.
