Gifted Lives exhibition

Gifted Lives celebrates the stories of Queensland families whose lives have been touched by organ donation, whether as recipients or donors. The moving and heartfelt exhibition captures the profound human connections which occur around organ donation, and encourages viewers to reflect on the importance of registering as potential donors.

The photographs were taken by talented young Brisbane artist, Louis Lim, who is deeply moved by the diversity of human connections and experiences. Louis specialises in photography of people and situations which are often unseen in the media.

He visited each family who participated in this project, listened to their stories and had the great privilege of being invited into their lives. Louis’s beautiful images that resulted (portrait and still-life) speak to the trust he developed with his subjects – a trust which allowed for true collaboration. The photographs are intimate, revealing, joyful, intriguing and occasionally very sad. They reflect the many ways in which organ donation impacts individuals, families, communities and professional caregivers.

Gifted Lives is a joint initiative of Donate Life Queensland and Children’s Health Queensland’s Arts-In-Health Program. For more information, visit Arts in Health
