"Natural Surroundings: Photographs by Kerry Trapnell"
2002-02-01 until 2002-03-17
Cairns Regional Gallery
Cairns, QL, AU

Internationally recognised Cairns-based photographer Kerry Trapnell, presents a unique collection of images from Cape York Peninsula in a new exhibition opening at Cairns Regional Gallery tomorrow night, February 1st at 6.30pm. Entitled Natural Surroundings, this is Trapnellís first exhibition at the Gallery and incorporates a selection of over 30 colour photographs taken by the artist over a 10-year period.

Trapnell, who has prepared commissioned works for National Geographic and the World Wide Fund for Nature, said Natural Surroundings was a very personal and diverse collection of photographs.

There is a lot of seasonal and pictorial diversity within the images of this exhibition, Trapnell said. †

Originally I was interested in the landscapes because they were so unknown and diverse, but in recent years Iíve moved towards taking pictures of the aboriginal community engaged in traditional practices like hunting and gathering, he said.

Iíve gone back [to Cape York Peninsula] many times over the years Öthere is a significant emotional attachment and layer of memories with each picture.

Trapnell, who moved to Cairns in 1981 and boasts a Degree in Science from the University of Queensland, became a professional photographer in 1995.

Iíve never studied or had any training in photography; it was an interest of mine in the 1980s that I have pursued and tried to develop into a career.

Natural Surroundings will be officially opened at Cairns Regional Gallery on Friday 1st February at 6.30pm, in the presence of the artist. †It will be on show in the first floor Ireland Family Access Gallery until March 17th.
