Keeping Your Distance - Up Close and Personal

Laurie Brackley and Ailsa Brackley du Bois

This artistic photography exhibition showcases the natural environment from two perspectives: the big picture, titled ‘Keeping Your Distance’ and the intimate point of view, titled ‘Up Close and Personal’. Sometimes the boundaries blur. 
The photographic gaze for this exhibition extends proudly across the Central Highlands and Western Victoria. From detailed portraits of trees and birds to rolling fields back-dropped by ancient volcanic mountains, the viewer can experience a holistic view of the profoundly beautiful Australian landscape and environment.
The exhibition showcases 34 original photographs taken on location in: Addington, Ascot, Glenbrae, Halls Gap, Lake Learmonth, Lake Wendouree, Maldon, Mount Beckworth, Mount Bolton, Mount Bunninyong, Mount Elephant, Mount Greenoch, Murra Warra, Weatherboard, Willaura and Windermere.

Laurie enjoys finding unique angles on, and insights into, texture and repetition, using natural light and traditional, unmodified methods. Ailsa seeks balance and symmetry in what she’s viewing, and is interested in composition and detail. Ailsa curated this exhibition.
