A photographer is an artist whose goal is to capture and freeze on-going moments by just pressing a button! However, to do this, you need the right set of tools, time, and talent. Ken and Michelle Dyball are among the few who have them all!
The couple are proud to have their first solo exhibition of their works in Sydney this November. They have explored and wandered the African wilderness for ten years hunting the right-moments. So, each of their images has its own story to tell. “The work is grand, intimate and most of all emotional,” Black Eye Gallery director, Tom Evangelids, believes.
For them, it all started with a plan of ‘no plan’; as they called it. They went to different African countries, explored lands, saw the wildlife from the right angles, and captured the right moments. That is why looking at their photographs is like watching native animals in their natural habitats.
Ken and Michelle’s images are always emotional, and because their images resemble no other works, the couple has been recognised and awarded internationally numerous times. The ‘BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards’ and the ‘Nature’s Best Photography Windland Rice International Awards”’are only two of them.
Nonetheless, the couple’s dream is to share their extraordinary experiences with others, which has now come true; thanks to Black Eye Gallery. It is only months before publishing a large collection of their works by The Natural History Museum of Britain in 2018.
