A Long Time between Drinks comprises 13 black-and-white photographs housed within a purpose-designed archival box.
These photographs taken in 1995 in Adelaide, more then 12 years after Gill had left the city where she fist lived when she arrived in Australia. Gill retraces her steps through her old localities and familiar places looking for points of view and perspectives that she remembered, with a question about whether these vistas in her mind were still the same, if they had changed, or were they simply artifacts of how we remember. The photographs are a record of the question, but not a complete answer. The title refers to a meeting of old friends after a long break.
