Intimate exhibition shares family vacation
TRAVELLING around Australia is an exciting thing to do on its own, but when local Kialla resident, Terri Cowley got three quarters of the way through her 12 month family vacation and realised that she had taken more than 6,000 images on her iPhone, she decided upon her return she would hold an exhibition at Shepparton’s Eastbank Centre.
The exhibit, ‘Australia by iPhone’ will bring the walls of the centre to life with scenes from across our great country and will run from July 17 through to September 14 and will feature 25 of Terri’s favourite images.
The trip saw Terri, her husband, Richard and children, Jay and Beau travel 50,000km around Australia in a clockwise direction, each taking in the sights and experience in their own way, Terri taking them in on her phone.
Terri said, “I didn’t set out to take so many, or to particularly take them all on my iPhone, but I was impressed with what the iPhone could do and it was so easy to stick the iPhone in my pocket wherever I went.
“Taking the photos started as a way of just keeping in touch and interacting with people while we were away, but everybody started responding well to the images which encouraged me to take more. When I decided I was going to run an exhibit it really added another dimension to the trip.
“Taking photos on your phone is a really nice way of recording what you’ve done. It’s like a digital diary.”
To share Terri’s experience, view her images in the Eastbank Centre foyer from July 17. For further information, find ‘AustraliabyiPhone’ on Facebook.
