CELEBRATING BYRON’S NATURAL BEAUTY
Byron Bay’s dynamic arts scene is abuzz with the opening of the new gallery in town, by Internationally acclaimed nature photographer and local boy, Craig Parry.
Craig will celebrate the opening of his new Byron Bay Gallery, with a Launch Night
on Friday January 20th | 6 – 9pm
at Gallery Shop 7 / 8 Fletcher Street, Byron Bay.
“My greatest inspiration is to connect humanity to nature through photography. I’m incredibly excited to share this passion with everyone and hope my images can act as a focal point to raise awareness for conservation and the beauty which can be found right on our doorstep”, says Craig, a Global Sony Ambassador and International multi award winning nature photographer.
Each photograph presents everyday moments from unique perspectives with the focus primarily upon exhibiting images captured in the Byron Bay area.
Located on Fletcher Street, the gallery showcases Craig’s signature marine, aerial and landscape imagery. The gallery has been a long-term project for Craig who has spent years capturing and curating content that would appeal to both a local and international market.
To celebrate the gallery’s opening, this Friday (20th January) Craig will be launching an exhibition featuring some of his top images and unveiling a limited edition Migaloo print which has never been seen before!
