Sadness - a journey in photographs and words. William Yang, one of Australia's leading photographers, mourns the deaths and celebrates the lives of his friends. he also travels to his birthplace in far north Queensland to come to terms with his Chinese heritage and what it means to be bicultural. Sadness is based on the sell-out show of the same name, which has been touring nationally and internationally since 1992. Grief, the meaning of home and the spirit, the courage with which people face both their own deaths and the deaths of friends and family, are all the subject of this unique, brave and moving autobiography, told as only William Yang could tell it. William Yang is the ordinary Australian bloke - a gay Chinese middle-aged genius working in a borrowed form. Peter Goers, Adelaide Advertiser. Out of death emerges a new joy. Brian Hoad, Bulletin. An extraordinary work Leonard Radic, Age...this is a beautiful, healing show. Sarah Hemming, Financial Times His momologue is facinating and utterly absorbing, a joy to have witnessed.
