About the exhibition

Fate or Destiny: Living Life with Passion is a collection of 21 photos and stories that aim to inspire people to make conscious choices in life rather than to merely follow the well-trodden trail. The words ‘fate’ and ‘destiny’ are often used interchangeably but Nilmini believes them to have opposing meanings.

To choose fate is to let your life unfold according to the norms of society, while to choose destiny, is to make a conscious choice at every stage of your life. Through a unique collection of photographs and insightful writing the artist explains that the pursuit of destiny is all about finding the thing that makes your heart sing.

I have published a book Fate or Destiny: Living Life with Passion that is available for sale in conjunction with the exhibition.  This book has all of the images and text that form this exhibition plus many more images with corresponding text.

My partner Steven Liaros and I are currently touring Australia in a campervan.  We have a mobile consultancy and conduct workshops and author talks in various venues on the topics of sustainable cities, the Circular Economy etc.  For more visit: www.polisplan.com.au/client/pages/Workshop.aspx

Depending on where we are, it may be possible for us to travel to the gallery hosting the exhibition to conduct workshops and for me to present an author talk on the exhibition and my photo book.
