The Untouched Canyon – An Exhibition by Rory O’Chee
“In Far Western Queensland lies a landscape composed of a heady mix of mesas, red stone bluffs, spinifex and gibber plains, and tortured trees, which rivals Arizona’s famed Monument Valley. Never before photographed, this is The Untouched Canyon.”
From December 5–15, 2018, Aspire Gallery is proud to be hosting The Untouched Canyon, an exhibition by award winning emerging young photographer, Rory O’Chee.
The exhibition is the culmination of two years’ work photographing the Diamantina region in Far Western Queensland. This involved traversing dirt mustering tracks, and hiking across country to reach hidden valleys and spectacular peaks.
