Just before Xmas CEDA (Committee for Economic Development for Australia) held an event at which Ita Buttrose was the guest speaker. I remember being quite captivated by her after watching the TV mini–series, The Birth of Cleo, a couple of years ago. Many of my Ozzie friends remarked about the influence she had had on their lives. So I was just so happy to find myself photographing this event and Ms Buttrose herself. Although slightly formidable, she is indeed beautiful and intriguing.
