Seeing through a photographer’s eyes
Rodney Marchant makes intensely beautiful monochrome photographs of the things that attract his well-tuned photographer’s eye: places across the towns and landscapes of our central Victorian goldfields region, using a modified camera, and printing his own images.
Don’t miss this exhibition. All welcome and (as always) our exhibitions are free.
