Opening Night Friday February 17th 6-8pm
Two local photographers Emily Ellis and Helen Whittle exhibit their stunning, evocative work in a joint exhibition.
Helen Whittle is a local, natural light photographer specialising in child portraits and fine-art nature imagery. Inspired by dramatic light, she produces simple, emotive and authentic images. With a style consisting of mainly black and white, she finds beauty in her everyday. As well as being a finalist in The Voice Collection 2016 in Click Magazine, she was Runner Up Australian Portrait Photographer of the year in 2015.
Emily Ellis' photography seeks to capture the romance of the central west landscape. Preoccupied with dreamy, soft and hazy light she is drawn to the simplicity of wild grasses, the melancholy of abandoned early colonial buildings and long empty open roads. Her children feature in her work as she hopes to catch the simplicity and freedom of a country childhood.
