‘AFRIKA – THE WILD’ by Ken and Michelle Dyball @ Black Eye Gallery: Opens 16th of November
‘AFRIKA – THE WILD’ will be the international first time showing by photographers Ken and Michelle Dyball. The images have been selected from a vast archive of work shot over a ten-year period whilst the couple resided in Africa. Unlike most ‘visiting’ image makers of Africa, the Dyball’s knowledge and connection to the land is apparent through their unique and unrepeatable images.
The Dyball’s work has been recognized internationally winning multiple awards, which include include ‘Nature’s Best African Photography Awards’ and ‘BBC Wildlife Photographer of the year’. The couple will also be the subject of a future publication by the prestigious Natural History Museum in London, who not only acknowledge the beauty of their work but of its ethological importance.
Black Eye Gallery director Tom Evangelids – “This is a truly unique representation of Africa by two of Australia’s foremost international nature photographers. The work is grand, intimate and most of all emotional- its compelling to see native animals in their natural habitats. Having Nick Brandt’s work in the gallery last year, we are honoured to have another fine body of images from this amazing continent and we are thrilled they are Australian!”
