Solo exhibitions for photographers are often considered to mark the artist’s coming of age. A third solo exhibition for Australian, David Phillips, just announced, points to his maturity as a photographic artist.

The exhibition, entitled ‘Capturing Light’, will be displayed in a new photography exhibit at the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens Lagoons Gallery from August 29, 2012.

Mr Phillips, a member of The Australian Institute of Professional Photographers (AIPP), has lived in the Mackay area of Queensland for 22 years, after growing up in the small Queensland town of Duaringa. He is well known for instilling his love of the Australian landscape into his photographic art.

The exhibition combines images from the local area, with those taken in The Kimberley region of Western Australia, under the mentorship of one of Australia’s leading landscape photographers, Ken Duncan.

“The time I spent with Ken in Western Australia has had a dramatic impact on the way I capture and interpret the landscape” said Mr Phillips. “I’m delighted that one of my Western Australian images recently received an award from the AIPP.”

Mr Phillips says the diverse Mackay area is daily inspiration for photographers like himself.

“From the blues of the Whitsunday Passage, to the deep greens of the timeless Eungella National Park, through to the reds and browns of the rugged of the Bowen Basin - there is beauty at every turn.”
