In the past, Georgina was the founder and director of the Obscurity Pictures Gallery Space in Melbourne, Australia and founded The Plastic Photo Show, an annual open entry photography exhibition for plastic lens and toy cameras, and authored The Plastic Photo Show – The Book a book celebrating the artists who had participated. She has also been a guest lecturer multiple times at universities around Melbourne, speaking about her scanner cameras and her practice as an artist.
