Written on the Eye

4 Nov 2017 to 26 Nov 2017
Written On The Eye, presented by Julie Martin at the Everglades Gallery Leura
Not only captured by the lens, these images were imprinted within me. Some were taken by looking again at both the obvious and less obvious. Others are the result of an immediate and spontaneous impact. In this exhibition, I have chosen images that spoke to me not only visually, but told me the stories from beneath their surface.
