An exhibition of “cameraless” photography by an artist who grew up at Dubbo has opened at the Western Plains Cultural Centre (WPCC).

James Farley attended the centre at the weekend for the official opening.

Farley uses traditional darkroom techniques but chooses to do so without a camera.

Working directly with photographic paper and natural material from the land, he explores the notion of the landscape and the way in which we view, use and regard the world in which we live.

Farley’s Working Within is the first HomeGround exhibition for 2018.

HomeGround is a program for emerging regional artists to develop an exhibition for the WPCC.

It is supported by Orana Arts and sponsored by Wingewarra Dental.
