Opening: Rae Begley’s debut photo exhibition ‘Annapurna’

Sydney artist Rae Begley’s incredible photographic series, Annapurna opens tomorrow night at Mild Manners Project Gallery in Surry Hills. It’s the last exhibition for a busy 2014 for the gallery.

Captured entirely on 35mm film, Begley’s work is a reflection on the contrasting elements seen in the extremes of nature. Majestic and spiritual, the sacred valleys and ranges are captured around an altitude of 4000m in the heartland of the Annapurna ranges and they depict a rapidly evolving landscape.

Opening Tuesday, December 16th 5-8pm
Exhibition continues daily until the 20th. 

Level 1, 499 Crown St

Was in Melbourne for the opening of the Eyes show and was lucky to spend time hanging out with Miso and GP. Miso has just moved into a new space (once the studio of Vali Myers) and I got a chance to field test Backwoods new lights (which fucking rule).

Shots like this make me think that i’m ready to start calling myself a photographer.
