Like a surgeon losing the functionality of his/her hands or a king unable to make a speech, Betty Churcher lived through the degeneration of her eyesight. Who is Betty Churcher? She was the former Director of the National Gallery of Australia, art critic at The Australian newspaper and all in all lived for the love of art. In her latest book, My Notebooks, she takes the reader through some of the best known galleries around Europe and the United States with her own sketches and opinions. Find out how this amazing painter, curator and author keeps her passion alive against all odds. The photograph pictured here by Dean Golja was a finalist in the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2009.
