The Photography Room is pleased to present Black & White Landscapes by Michael Masters. 

Michael Masters spent the majority of 2015 based in Washington D.C. in the USA. During this time Michael made frequent trips to photograph the natural woodlands of the Appalachian Trail in Virginia. Upon returning to Canberra, Michael has continued his work with natural environments, focusing on the bushland surrounding his hometown of Canberra.

The landscapes made in the ACT include images of critically endangered yellow box–Blakely’s red gum grassy woodlands. These woodlands are of national significance and contain some of the best-connected, most botanically diverse stands in Australia.

The prints in this exhibition are amongst the most accomplished pigment prints The Photography Room's Director Sean Davey has ever seen. For those who love traditional silver gelatin black and white photography, this is an exhibition not to be missed. Michael's landscapes embody a sensibility and awareness of space and tonal range rarely seen in modern-day inkjet prints. Michael's work is a true accomplishment in photography and in printing.
