Stunning photo display

CREATING dynamic, visually appealing artworks without the use of Photoshop is photographer Rachael Windress' ultimate goal.

This is evident in her first solo exhibition titled RAW which is currently on display at Goonellabah's Invercauld House.

The 31-year-old from Lismore said she had been experimenting with photography since her first experience in a dark room as a 12 year-old.

Now after studying a diploma of photography, the former Brisbane resident said she hoped to inspire people and make them explore their creativity with a camera.

"I am really passionate about creating new images and looking at new ideas and how to create different images using objects and lighting and reflections," said.

Her non-figurative abstract photos combine the use of objects including balls and masks and the reflection of fibre optic lights to create the vibrant colours she captured with a macro lens.

RAW was launched on December 1 at North Lismore's Serpentine Gallery, which continues to run a window display of her work.

The main body of her work is on display at Invercauld house until March 1.
