An exhibition: Transitions, winter 2018
Through the seasons, across the years…Transitions is a photographic study of the magnificent National Trust property Everglades Historic House & Gardens. After exhibiting at the Everglades Gallery in Leura this May, Transitions is now travelling to the National Trust’s Retford Park in Bowral. Come and see one of the most beautiful locations in the Blue Mountains over four seasons. There is also a book, available now (contact Feathermark for a copy).
Experience two National Trust Properties at once
In 2016 Mr James Fairfax (AC) gifted his historic Retford Park home in the Southern Highlands to the National Trust of Australia. This was one of the largest single acts of philanthropy in the history of NSW. Visit the exhibition in the gallery on site, then stroll through the gardens and grounds of Retford Park. See a few of the photographic works here.

Everything has a footprint
I offset Feathermark Photography’s footprint with Australian certified carbon credits (Forests Alive, forest conservation projects). Through Feathermark, I’ve also funded the planting of 417 Australian natives through Trees For Life. I like to think of it as Feathermark’s forest. More creature habitat, more places to build a nest.
Feathermark is the first individual artist studio with Low Carbon Living Blue Mountains.
