Award-winning architecture and design photographer Dianna Snape is to present her first solo exhibition in Melbourne on Thursday, June 27.

The 13 images present Snape’s prowess with the craft of aerial photography while the subject matter, the Tarangire National Park, Tanzania, is a place close to her heart. Having forged a bond with the Tanzanian people from her many journeys to the country since 2011, Snape also holds a fascination for the landscape and this exhibition showcases the extraordinary terrain of the Park that is both beautiful and compelling in abstraction.

The title of the exhibition, Lines and Tangles, refers to the trails and tracks created by migrating animals in the dry season attracted to the only water source, a river that truncates the area. The large-scale images on display convey the immensity of the Park that is some 2850 square kilometers in size.

The colours of the images are surprisingly soft and sensuous and the arid earth populated by the occasional baobab tree presents an ethereal construct. The tracks and paths become lines that wander and curve through the images and overall the exhibition is a celebration of the beauty of Tanzania.

Lines and Tangles will be on view for two weeks at The Print Room, Gollings Studio, 147 Chapel Street, St Kilda, from 10.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Thursday and the entire series of edition pigment inkjet prints are for sale with profits donated to a Tanzanian charity.

Opening night is Thursday 27 June from 6.00pm to 8.00pm and visitors are welcome to attend this event but must RSVP to Dianna Snape on dianna@diannasnape.com.au
