Watto’s Wanderings – 30 Years Behind The Wheel & Behind The Lens
22 August 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1 September 2019 @ 5:00 pm| Adults $5; Concession $4; Focal Point Members FREE
This is a 30-year retrospective of work by our founder Craig “Watto” Watson, who worked for six years on The Weekly Times newspaper and more than 20 years freelance – covering motorsport, classic cars, events and news. Watto was official photographer for the 1997 Avalon Airshow and the 2000 Royal Visit to Sovereign Hill, as well as on numerous charity bush rallies and other events.
Much of the exhibition is photojournalism, but Watto also has a passion for landscape and portrait photography so these genres also feature well. He also loves travelling through the Australian Outback, where he has found some of his most enduring images and memories.
The exhibition features over 130 photos, both colour and black-and-white, over a wide range of subjects and shot on a variety of formats – from pinhole photography to large-format, film and digital.
The gallery is open Wednesdays to Sundays 10am to 5pm
