Happy snappers in the frame
SANDIE Read has been taking photographs for much of her life.
Living on a cattle property between Mundubbera and Eidsvold, she said she is never short of inspiration.
However, after her son, who has a disability, left to live in supported accommodation, she "needed something to distract myself.”
So she learnt more about her camera and immersed herself in photography.
"I take my camera everywhere with me,” Ms Read said.
"I love to capture emotion and the character of things.”
On Friday night, the Mundubbera Clix exhibition will open at the town's Regional Art Gallery.
For Ms Read and fellow photographers Lynette Vicary, Lorraine Maskell and Noel Thompson, this will be their first ever exhibition.
"Of course I am (nervous),” Ms Read laughed.
"But we've all been supporting each other, it's wonderful.”
Each photographer has contributed around 15 photos to the exhibition, so avoiding the prohibitive price of framing 60 photos themselves.
Ms Read said it was a good opportunity for her to learn more about the framing process.
Gallery coordinator Sue Allen said she was excited to host the photographers.
She said the historical society has also loaned some antique cameras which will be displayed in cabinets at the exhibition to provide "insight into the evolution of photography.”
Ms Allen and the photographers spent Saturday busily preparing the space for it to hopefully open to the public on Monday, before its official opening on Friday night at 6:30pm.
