Life on the Colour Spectrum

An exhibition of fine art prints by landscape photographer Andy Hutchinson

Colour ... Captured

Little did Andy know, when he took up photography at the age of 11, that his hobby was excellent therapy for undiagnosed autism and ADHD. He enjoyed going out into the landscape, alone with his thoughts and his camera and capturing the beauty in the natural world.

When he emigrated to Australia nearly 20 years ago and settled in the South Coast, he became entranced by this region’s incredible sunrises and sunsets. Capturing that light became an obsession. And now, nearly a quarter of a million photos later, he thinks he’s caught enough good ones to put on his first gallery exhibition.

Celebrating the South

The sun and its light is the central theme of all of Andy’s work, which embraces both traditional and abstract photography techniques. “My personal favourites are the macro shots, taken on the south coast’s beaches and the dunes at sunrise and sunset. For me, the abstract forms of the sun, the light and the dune grasses, created by shooting with a very wide aperture, capture some of the feeling of being on one of our beautiful beaches at that special time of the day.”

Diagnosed with autism and ADHD in adult-hood, Andy now realises that his photography is a way of dealing with the world, of mentally reseting and of fully exploring an enduring passion for light and colour.

15 Gallery Grade Fine Art Prints

This gallery exhibition is the first time Andy has displayed his work in fine art gallery grade prints. The images selected have been carefully curated to showcase the vibrant south coast light that draws people to this region.

Two of Andy's best known photographs have been printed large and would serve as a focal point for any house or office. The sunrise and sunset is captured in the beach macro series and locals will no doubt spot several of the region's best known locations.

For the last 16 years I’ve been photographing, blogging (and more recently vlogging) about everything I find, see and enjoy here in South Coast, New South Wales. This is my blogging site focused on my hobby (and part-time job) of photography. Please enjoy my little writing and my photography and I’d love to hear your feedback.
