News becomes art as DEX pics go on show
AN EXHIBITION chronicling the faces, lives and stories of the Clarence Valley last year will be on display at the Grafton Regional Gallery later this month.
Special Edition: The Best of The Daily Examiner Photography in 2013 features the work of Daily Examiner photographers Adam Hourigan, JoJo Newby and Debrah Novak.
The images were originally presented in The Daily Examiner in 2013 and focus on the faces and places that made the news. The exhibition gives them a life away from newsprint and they are presented as a selected group in the gallery space.
Clarence Valley Mayor Richie Williamson said the photos were a small representation of the hundreds of stories The Daily Examiner covered and the people they met last year.
"When you flick through the newspaper it's easy to miss details here and there but if there's an image with the story you are instantly attracted to the article," Cr Williamson said.
"Highlighting some of the images in an exhibition is a great way to acknowledge the wonderful work by our news photographers."
Special Edition: The Best of The Daily Examiner Photography in 2013 will be on display from today to June 29. It will be officially opened at a free event on May 22 at 5.30pm. Bookings are appreciated.
