Michael Lyddiard’s Last Seen
Last Seen partners renowned artists with vision impaired Australians to depict their most cherished visual memory.
Former Australian Army soldier Michael Lyddiard was on tour when his life changed forever. Michael vividly remembers that autumn afternoon in 2007 and the moments before and after the explosion: the peaceful hut and green landscape suddenly charred by dirt and blood, and with it, the burning sensations and smells.
The Last Seen artworks were sold to help Queensland Eye Institute carry on vital medical research to save sight.
