Snap­per’s pas­sion is in­spir­ing

Southern Telegraph - - Opinion - Beata Stasak, Kar­nup

Thanks to pho­tog­ra­pher Chris­tian Fletcher for his won­der­ful ex­hi­bi­tion of the “Sto­ries of Our Out­back” at the Rock­ing­ham Gary Hol­land Cen­tre.

Chris­tian grew up in Rock­ing­ham and it was won­der­ful to see him come home and share his amaz­ing pas­sion and tal­ent in photography with us all.

The sto­ries de­scrib­ing his pho­to­graphs have been very mov­ing and his pas­sion for the Australian out­back en­riched us all.

Chris­tian has shown his ut­most care and love for his Aus­tralia, es­pe­cially for the out­back, and he be­lieves he can per­suade more peo­ple to join the Part­ner­ship for the Out­back — the al­liance of con­ser­va­tion or­gan­i­sa­tions which are ask­ing govern­ment to cre­ate more na­tional parks man­aged by indige­nous rangers.

Cer­tainly he per­suaded me to care for the out­back more and see its beauty through his eyes. If his vi­sion comes true, the out­back will be­come ac­ces­si­ble and cher­ished by Aus­tralians and fu­ture gen­er­a­tions on a big­ger scale.

Thank you Chris­tian you have shown us what it means to be a true blue Australian.
