The High Country wins for recently published book

HIGH PRAISE: Local photographer Richard White has been awarded gold for his publication The High Country.

MANSFIELD photographer Richard White has scored another award through the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers, this time for his recently published book The High Country.

The black and white photographs of the different aspects of the High Country won a Gold Award for content, design and print quality.

Five independent judges scored The High Country more than 90 out of 100 for each of the five criteria.

A clean sweep for Richard and the area he knows so well.

The book itself took some years of research, writing and most importantly capturing the images that reflect Richard’s unique way of seeing through the camera lens.

An exhibition of Richard’s work is also opening at Art at St Francis, Lonsdale Street, Melbourne on November 18 running through until December 15.
