Summary The Victorian city of Geelong has a great story to tell. Geelong: In Our Own Words is a biographical retrospective of 32 impressive and influential people from this regional hub, collated into a visually stunning coffee-table book. Featuring striking portrait photography by renowned photographer and surf coast resident Julian Kingma, this is the untold story of Geelong greats. With an exclusive and insightful account from Geelong's 'God' Gary Ablett Senior, to big-name film star Guy Pearce, the book captures people from across the community who all called Geelong home. Other greats include Frank Costa, Brian Singer, Sam Newman, Gary Ablett Junior and Kelly Cartwright. The city played a huge role in shaping who they are today, and in turn they played their part in putting this great city on the international map. There are stories of extreme success and stories of tear-jerking tragedy. See the city from a different perspective, as each individual shares their unique tale in their own words. And, most importantly, find out what Geelong means to them
