'EXTRAordinary' photographic exhibition at Discover Eumundi
The team at Discover Eumundi Heritage and Visitor Centre are preparing for the opening of a remarkable exhibition by photographer Kim Guthrie. Titled 'EXTRAordinary', the collection of images is described by the artist as "An honest depiction of the beauty in everyday life".
Manager of Discover Eumundi Wendy Birrell says the exhibition is inspirational in celebrating the raw simplicity and 'realness' of everyday Australians.
"As a social commentary, the EXTRAordinary exhibition is a great fit displayed amongst Eumundi's heritage collection," Wendy says.
"Kim has created these images as a wonderful antidote to the airbrushed, blemish free, sanitary illusion of perfection and beauty so often seen in photographs fed to the masses," she says.
This fascinating and quirky collection highlights the commonplace or stereotypical characters from an often overlooked side of Australian culture.
"It's real Aussies photographed in their everyday environments just doing what they do," Wendy says.
"And while Kim photographed far and wide in sourcing subjects for the exhibition, the fact that he is based in nearby Cooroy means a good number of images are of Sunshine Coast faces," she says.
To coincide with the exhibition, Discover Eumundi will present a slide show of Kim's previously unshown images of characters from the Eumundi environment.
Kim Guthrie's self-published photographic books will be for sale at Discover Eumundi for the duration of the exhibition.
The exhibition will be on display from Thursday 3 March until Thursday 28 April, with the official opening taking place on Thursday 10 March at 5.30pm.
Those interested in attending the official opening, are invited to contact Discover Eumundi on 5442 8762.
