Focus on photos

SNAPSHOTS of Albany and surrounds are displayed throughout Mt Romance Sandalwood Factory for the Southern Art and Craft Trail and have proven so popular, the photographers have been asked to keep their photos in-situ for an additional two weeks.

In The Moment is a collection of dozens of photographs taken by members of Albany Photographic Society.

The group has not exhibited in a while, so member Kate Reynard was excited about how well it all came together.

“I was super-duper nervous, but we’ve had awesome support,” she said.

“We had an open theme for this exhibition because we wanted members to feel comfortable with what they were submitting, and we’ve had an overwhelming response from the group.

“It’s just wonderful.”

Amongst the collection are local landscapes, nature shots, botanical close-ups and a few abstract pieces.

Reynard was proud of the group’s success, particularly as they have been asked to keep their work at the Sandalwood Factory for an additional two weeks after the Trail ends.

“So, if people haven’t had the chance to come and see our work, it will be here until the end of October,” she said.

The exhibition is located at 2 Down Road off Albany Highway and is open daily 9am to 5pm.
