On Anzac Day 2015, the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) embarked on a nationwide project for the Anzac Centenary to photograph Australia’s surviving World War II veterans – many now in their late nineties.  In South Australia alone 1050 portraits were taken over a seven month period by South Australian professional photographers who donated their time and expertise to make this remarkable tribute.

Veterans SA is partnering with AIPP, Flinders University Art Museum and Atkins Photo Lab, to present a selection of 100 portraits from the South Australian collection, for an exhibition titled ‘Wish me luck’.

The exhibition provides a snapshot of our remaining South Australian men and women who served in World War II, honouring their service and the service of those who are no longer with us.

Curated by Sharon Cleary (Veterans SA) and Louise Bagger (AIPP), ‘Wish me luck’ will be presented at Flinders University Art Museum on North Terrace from 9 July through to 11 September, 2016. Entry is free. A series of public talks will accompany the exhibition.
