There were 2 displays of Bob Bolton's photos at this year's NFF in honour of his Lifetime Achievement Award.

Bob was an official photographer for the National for many years and Graham McDonald of NFF Board created a display using images from BMC and NFF archives. Bob's negatives of local & national folk events dating from late 1970 (after the 1970 National) are held by the National Library.

A display of Bob's dance photos was a popular attraction in the Coorang with dancers providing identifications of some of the people in the photos. Check out the links for the updated captions. Further updates are welcome via email
