You haven’t seen the Coral Coast captured like this before!
In a brand new photography exhibition, Through the Dragon’s Eyes showcases the region through the lens of Chinese photographers from the Zhongyi Photography Club.
The first exhibition of its kind in Western Australia will be on display at the Museum of Geraldton from 12 April 2019 to promote and showcase Australia’s Coral Coast.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the region was an emerging destination for photography themed tourism.
“We are attracting more and more photographers who are discovering Western Australia as the perfect place for amazing photography due to the unique landscape and pristine natural environment,” he said.
“Not only do we have some of the most stunning landscapes in the world here on the Coral Coast, but we also boast clear skies which is perfect for capturing the stars and night sky.”
The exhibition is comprised of 40 photographs taken by 22 different Chinese photographers.
The exhibiting photographers visited Geraldton in September 2018 and January 2019 as part of the Photography Club’s international tutorial program.
With a main focus on landscapes and nightscapes, the photos capture locations including Geraldton, Lancelin, Cervantes, Northampton and Kalbarri.
“People from the region tend to see these landscapes every single day and become desensitized to the unique beauty,” Mayor Van Styn added.
“So it’s great to have international guests, some seeing our region for the very first time, capturing the amazing Coral Coast.”
The exhibition is a joint initiative between the City of Greater Geraldton, Easy Going Travel Services, Museum of Geraldton and Zhongyi Photography Club.
It will be on display at the Museum of Geraldton from Friday 12 April until Sunday 12 May.
