Mountain Treasures: Trees and Water
A Photographic Exhibition by Peter Hill
This exhibition by Katoomba based photographer Peter Hill features photographs shot exclusively in the Blue Mountains. Several years in the making, the images reflect the moods of the mountains as represented by the physical relationships of the trees and water with this precious and wild landscape. This collection of limited edition framed and unframed prints encapsulates the principles of "real photography", where manipulation plays no part and the emphasis is on in-camera captures.
