Discovering photography at a very early age ignited in artist Lynne Alexander a passion that would turn not only into a profession but also a lifeline.
With a career spanning over 30 years and two nations, Lynne's technique and inspiration have changed many times. Since arriving in Australia she has carved her name in the industry with a successful portrait studio in Mosman.
However, it was returning to nature several years ago that helped Lynne overcome one of the greatest challenges of her life. Seven years ago, whilst working and raising a six year old as a single mother, Lynne was diagnosed with advanced cancer.
For most, this experience would have been overwhelmingly negative. But not for Lynne, "getting cancer saved my life", she said. The realisation that life is to short not to follow your passions provided the catalyst for Lynne to return to nature, and beat the cancer and its side effects.
It is the culmination of these experiences that has inspired Lynne's upcoming exhibition.
The Lynne Alexander Landscape Photography Exhibition features a collection of limited release prints capture nature and special moments that fed Alexander's curiosity and fostered her inner strength.
The exhibition is open to the public free of charge and is running from the 12 August to the 31 August 2017 from Wednesdays to Sundays at the me Artspace, 25 Atchison St, St Leonards NSW 2065, Australia. Opening night is Friday 18th August, 6pm - 8pm. If you are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to have your name put on the guest list.
Lynne will also be hosting a number of meet the artist sessions. Times for these sessions will be announced via the Facebook page.
