Hunter Valley fine arts photographer John Lechner, is getting set to launch his Iceland Collection, showcasing 26 breathtaking images from the land of fire and ice.
A robust love of photography paired with a keen desire to explore, has seen John travel the world to capture breathtaking images. John has recently visited Cambodia, France, Iceland and Czech Republic in the pursuit of the perfect shot.
The Iceland Collection is a carefully curated selection of images taken during John’s time in Iceland. Starting with over 5,000 images, and after much deliberation, John carefully picked the final 26 images that will feature in the exhibition.
“Iceland has always been in my top five places to shoot with its stunning natural beauty and contrasting landscapes. During my time in Iceland I was inspired by the loneliness, isolation and pure beauty of the country,” said John.
“Iceland is a raw, barren and harsh place, but this is why is it so beautiful. Trees barely grow, grass thrives in the spring sun but freezes in the winter snows. The landscape was truly inspiring.”
John is pleased to be able to share his exquisite 26-piece, fine art collection at his upcoming exhibition. The Iceland Collection will launch on Saturday 18th October, 2014 at Four Point Gallery, 681 Hunter Street, Newcastle. The exhibition will feature a collection of limited edition and open edition fine art prints for sale.
The exhibition is open 16 October to 2 November Thursday to Sunday 12:00pm – 4:00pm at Four Point Gallery, 681 Hunter Street Newcastle.
