Goulburn photographer Geoff Henderson has spent decades travelling and mountain climbing with his trusty camera in hand. A new exhibition showcases the people, places and cultures he has encountered along the way.
'Colour living through the lens' is currently on exhibition at the Goulburn Club.
The exhibition features a selection of landscapes and portraits taken in Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Bhutan and Vietnam to name a few.
With his camera Mr Henderson sought to capture the culture and friendliness of people he met while traveling in some of the most remote regions on earth.
"I wanted to capture the essence of the country and the essence of the people, the vitality, the movement and the flavour of other cultures," he said.
The photographers' passion for mountain climbing centres on feelings of "freedom and the awesome experience of being surrounded by peaks of cultural and religious significance".
Mr Henderson said he enjoys the "genuine experience of climbing" rather than just ticking boxes for summits scaled.
Each piece in the exhibition is accompanied by the story behind the photograph. One of Mr Henderson's favourite portraits features a young girl holding a chicken.
He explained the photograph was taken in Samdo, Nepal. Samdo is a small village, 3700 metres above sea level, inhabited by Buddhist refugees who fled Tibet in 1949 from Communist China. The young girl went to great lengths to show Mr Henderson her favourite hen. This moment was forever captured in the photograph.
While the majority of the exhibition is dedicated to Mr Henderson's travels overseas, lovers of our sunburnt country will not be disappointed with a selection of Aussie landscape and nature photographs.
The exhibition will run until the end of November at the Goulburn Club. The club is open Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm to late, and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm.
