Winter Postcards exhibition

PhotoAccess is currently showing an exhibition of work by no less than 32 photographers. It’s called Winter Postcards, and as the name suggests all of the works must be postcard size (i.e. 6″ x 4″), with each exhibitor able to show up to 10 images.

The brief for the exhibition is very broad, with the only requirements being that the images should relate somehow to the winter theme – even if they are images of travel to warmer climes to escape the chilly Canberra winter – and that each set of images should work as a group.

I submitted 10 images under the title of “Alpine“. They are all snowy landscape images, with signs of human presence in several of them. Most have been taken in the Snowy Mountains region at some point over the past several years, though there are also two from New Zealand, from when I did a mountaineering course there a few years ago.
