One of Kangaroo Valley’s most well-known artists is photographer Colin Talbot. Jing Jo hosted his first solo show in 2019 and his photos waltzed off the walls. We’ve all been looking forward to this second solo show called Intimate Nature, featuring mostly close-up shots of wildlife and some gorgeous works featuring trees, especially after our last bushfires.
Colin is Victorian by birth and has lived in Kangaroo Valley for 30 years. He confesses to having bought his first digital camera as late as 2011, but has made up for lost time. He is a self-taught artist with a great eye - an essential quality for a photographer! He also has all the instincts to lead him to appreciate the many ins and outs of good composition.
Part of his journey as a photographer has been to involve himself in local clubs. He is in demand as a guest presenter and judge. He also takes part in many competitions and wins! In 2017 he travelled to the U.S. and gave presentations to clubs in Jackson, Mississippi, Memphis and in Gatlinburg in the Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee.
Intimate Nature features unusual animal close-ups, macro and landscape images.
