2013 Winter Newsletter - Special Limited Edition Release, Medium Format Art Prize and Exhibition

  

Hello and welcome to my 2013 winter newsletter.  It's hard to believe we're almost half way through 2013!  As the temperatures steadily drop, the frosts increase their frequency, the sun sets earlier and the general chill in the air becomes more noticeable.  It also brings the anticipation of snowfalls in the alpine region, and the surrounding mountains here in Canberra.

 

Special Limited Edition Release

 

This piece has been quite a while in the making, and I'm very excited to finally release one of my most exclusive images to date. 

 

 

 

 

Historic Homestead, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

 

 

This photograph is a special, limited edition piece of Old Wilpena Station in the Flinders Ranges.  This station was established in 1851, and was in operation amazingly until 1986.  It is the most complete group of early station buildings surviving in South Australia in an authentic pastoral landscape.  Its beautiful natural setting amongst humongous gum trees and its historic importance easily justify its heritage listing.

I allowed my imagination to wander with this image, and pictured the settlement in its early pioneering days in the 19th century.  In what may look old and mundane to some people, I found immense beauty.  You can picture the general running of the station amongst the stables, bookkeeper's hut, motor house and general store.  The well-preserved old brick buildings, gum trees showing their age from centuries of harsh conditions, and the surrounding mountains, make for a romantic take on this site as you peer back through Australia's pastoral history.

After a long day's hard work on the station, this certainly would have been a beautiful country scene to return in an outback environment.

Captured on one 6x17cm transparency film frame.

 

I have personally selected a specific mix of print size, an Italian hand crafted timber frame and mat colour to brilliantly complement this special piece.  This is also my smallest edition size, reflecting the exclusivity of the image.

See 'Historic Homestead' exhibited in Melbourne - 20 June to 8 July 2013

Earlier this year, I was notified Historic Homestead placed as a finalist in the 2013 Medium Format Art Prize.  Being the first time I entered the competition, I was very happy with this honour.  Eleven40 gallery in Malvern, Victoria, will be hosting the finalists exhibition.  Although I won't be personally in the gallery during this period, I do invite you to see the exhibition if you can.  You can find more information on the exhibition here.

 

Japan Trip

 

Since visiting Japan previously primarily for powder skiing, I have been looking forward to returning to photograph its beauty.  I spent 3 weeks travelling through the alps on the main island, and then 1 week in central Hokkaido photographing the mountains there too.  Many areas in Japan had a significant positive impact on me, and I look forward to working through my image collection, and expect to release some images from Japan later this year.

 

Finally, here's a postcard from Japan to keep with the winter theme!

 

 

 

 

Best regards,
Chris
