POR­TRAIT MAS­TER SHOWS HER WORK

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Photography -

AUSTRALIA’S most highly re­warded pho­tog­ra­pher, a res­i­dent of Vic­to­ria Park for more than 26 years, is hold­ing a ret­ro­spec­tive ex­hi­bi­tion of her craft.

Lyn Whit­field-King was Australia’s first awarded Grand Mas­ter Pho­tog­ra­pher, with six gold bars, and her sig­na­ture style por­trait images from across the world have won ac­claim con­sis­tently at the Aus­tralian Pro­fes­sional Photography Awards over many years.

Whit­field-King hand­crafts her black and white images in her own dark room, which brings her pho­to­graphs a rare, sub­tle el­e­gance in th­ese days of dig­i­tal, pointand-shoot photography, although her many years of ex­pe­ri­ence are plainly ev­i­dent in her own dig­i­tal work.

An artist in her field, Whit­field-King said she aimed to cap­ture the true essence of each mo­ment and emo­tion, or “the soul of photography”.

Called a Frame Around Life, the ex­hi­bi­tion will be held at her Ar­magh Street stu­dio by ap­point­ment.
