PHO­TOG­RA­PHER HEADS OFF IN A DIGITAL DIREC­TION

Rouse Hill Times - - NEWS - Vanessa Bradbury

PARKLEA pho­tog­ra­pher Catherine Leung only has to walk down the street to find her pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion at the Den­nis Johnson Li­brary in Stan­hope Gar­dens.

“I live on this street and have been coming to the li­brary and the Leisure Cen­tre for eight years, so it is pretty spe­cial to have an ex­hi­bi­tion on dis­play here,” she said.

The mother of three – Lili, 8, Char­lotte, 5 and Jet, 3 – is a glam­our pho­tog­ra­pher and de­cided two years ago to ex­plore digital art pho­tog­ra­phy.

“My work fo­cuses around the hu­man con­di­tion and the cen­tral themes in­clude love, loss and our de­sire to con­nect to some­thing more,” she said.

“This style of pho­tog­ra­phy has become more of my fo­cus re­cently as I have become more ex­cited about do­ing it.”

She said with each of her pic­tures on ex­hi­bi­tion she started out with a vi­sion of what she wanted and had to or­gan­ise photo shoots at different lo­ca­tions with different mod­els.

“It can take up to six months to com­plete one piece of art as it re­quires a lot of co-or­di­na­tion with the model, make-up artist and lo­ca­tion, plus com­plet­ing the piece on the com­puter,” she said.

Last year she ex­hib­ited her works in the Man­ning Bar at the Univer­sity of Sydney for the Verve ex­hi­bi­tion, in the Open Mind ex­hi­bi­tion in Fitzroy in Melbourne and in the St Michael’s Week ex­hi­bi­tion in Melbourne.

“For me when I ex­hibit my work, it is about ex­press­ing an idea, thought or con­cept to peo­ple so they can see it and con­nect with it too.

“At the mo­ment I have a photo shoot planned and have three other ideas on my to-do list.”

Mrs Leung’s ex­hi­bi­tion will be on dis­play at the li­brary through­out April and she is happy to sell her work.
