Dubbo photographer captures Iceland landscapes for exhibition

An adventure in Iceland by an up-and-coming young photographer has led to an exhibition at Charles Sturt University in Dubbo.

Dubbo’s Brook Kellehear-Smith, 24, used a Young Regional Artist Scholarship from Create NSW to attend a landscape photography workshop in Iceland with multi-award-winning photographer Mike Browne and Icelandic photographer Thorarinn Jonsson.

“I spent almost two weeks in Iceland travelling the south coast and then heading up into the snowy highlands,” Mr Kellehear-Smith said.  “My favourite part of the trip was experiencing and capturing the Aurora Borealis. It is something I recommend people putting on their bucket list.”

Mr Kellehear-Smith’s first solo exhibition featuring 13 landscape photographs won’t be his last with plans afoot for him to visit New Zealand this year. 

His current exhibition, called Ís og Eldur, or Ice and Fire, is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. It runs until December 15.
