JEREMY & JULIE BRAITHWAITE
Book Launch & Print Exhibition
Celebrated Hawkesbury artist Greg Hansell launched the two
PhotoTour Wildflower Books and the Print Exhibition on 23rd
April 2017 at The Village Kitchen gallery restauarant in Kurrajong.
He spoke about his own experiences in Western Australia,
remarked how much the wildlfowers stand out when the
background is stripped away. You then have an ability to really
look into the flower and see all the detail.
Greg asked the assembled crowd to raise their glasses and toast
each of the two books. A sparkling way to launch them both!
Jeremy then spoke about the three month journey to Western
Australia to follow the wildflower season from the north to the
south of the state, and the different flowers discovered at each
location, at the same time pointing them out on the wall or in the
book. He also spoke about the difficulty of photographing
flowers that are swaying about in the wind when you are trying
to focus on a tiny part of the flower.
The full text of Jeremy’s speech is here and provides a lot of
insight into the Exhibition and the two PhotoTour books.
