“Samantha Everton possesses an innate ability to access interior states of being in sumptuous visual narratives that have profound cross-cultural, sociological and psychological implications. The title of her new series of photographic art, Sang Tong, translates as ‘the golden shell’ and comes from a beautiful old folk tale from Thailand that is still a subject of study in Thai schools today. It is about a boy called Sang Tong who emerges triumphant and ‘golden’ from disquieting conditions. The story has a direct relevance to the subjects in Everton’s current body of work for like Sang Tong, the children featured are Thai adoptees who have become wonderfully ‘radiant’ in a changing of circumstance. They all now live in Melbourne.” JACQUELINE HOUGHTON
