Exhibition: Nature in time: images from central Victoria

Some moments pass too quickly, some things are too small for the eye to catch, some too ‘ordinary’ to be noticed. Photography helps us fix them in the mind, invites us to feel their unique weight. Photographs by Patrick Kavanagh, Bronwyn Silver, Bernard Slattery and David Tatnall.
