Lo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher cap­tures Buller

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

A STUN­NING col­lec­tion of pho­to­graphs are be­ing show­cased in the newly opened ‘Buller Wide’ ex­hi­bi­tion at Mt Buller’s Alpine Cen­tral this month.

The work of renowned lo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher Tony ‘Harro’ Har­ring­ton opens up fresh per­spec­tives of Mt Buller through sweep­ing panoramic images, some cap­tured from the air adding fur­ther drama to the pho­to­graphs.

“I feel so for­tu­nate to spend time here at Mt Buller where the views are al­ways chang­ing and the moun­tain is al­ways pro­vid­ing a sur­prise, as weather and light changes minute by minute,” Har­ring­ton said.

“I hope the many peo­ple who love this place and have a con­nec­tion to Mt Buller will be moved by these images.

“I can see these find­ing homes in lodges here on the moun­tain and also in homes or of­fices down in town, any­where peo­ple want to keep a con­nec­tion to the moun­tain.”

The images are shot in a wide for­mat giv­ing space to the scenes in­clud­ing soar­ing aerial per­spec­tives of the re­sort, broad views that im­merse you in the land­scape and bril­liant in­tri­cate de­tail.

Har­ring­ton is well known for his ac­tion pho­tog­ra­phy and shots of skiers or surfers push­ing the lim­its on the cov­ers of mag­a­zines.

He ex­plains his pro­gres­sion into land­scapes by say­ing that he al­ways cap­tured land­scapes and had been drawn to the power of waves and the majesty of moun­tains.

“I guess they’ve had less pub­li­ca­tion in mag­a­zines and the world of ac­tion sports so I’m en­joy­ing this shift of my cre­ative fo­cus to land­scapes and let­ting the en­vi­ron­ment be the cen­tre of at­ten­tion,” he said.

Har­ring­ton shoots up to a dozen images that are stitched into the wide panora­mas, de­liv­er­ing in­cred­i­ble sharp­ness and de­tail in the images.

The large prints are avail­able in a range of for­mats in­clud­ing acrylic face mounts and fine art pa­per prints.

“These are pieces that will hang in spe­cial places, so we make sure they shine and are mu­seum qual­ity,” said Har­ring­ton.

“They will stand the test of time and be passed down gen­er­a­tions.”

Buller Wide will be on show at Alpine Cen­tral at Mt Buller from Au­gust 11-26 with all works avail­able for pur­chase.
