Stories Beyond the Lens (SBTL) is a monthly event which allows emerging and established photographers to share the story behind a selection of their photographs. SBTL showcases a kaleidoscope of unique photographs every month to an intimate audience.
The photographs will be accessible at the Centre for Stories for one month and will be available for purchase.
This month, we feature Catherine Matthys and her collection 'Perspective' from India.
After spending years as a travelling spouse, moving eleven times, and often finding herself in busy cities, Catherine developed the skill of uncovering peace and beauty in the ordinariness of things. 'A passion for capturing moments of beautiful simplicity is what motivates me to pick up my camera most days', says Catherine. 'My heart jumps when I see a scene that conveys an evocative visual story.'
Catherine completed a Graduate Diploma in Creative Industries majoring in Photomedia in 2017 at Edith Cowan University. She won the 2017 Independent Photographer award for travel in Berlin.
Indian themed supper will be provided.
