HANCEVILLE, Ala. — Dozens of photographs by Australian photographer Anatole Zurrer are on display at The Evelyn Burrow Museum on the campus of Wallace State Community College.
Based out of Sydney, Australia, Zurrer’s photography celebrates everything that is Australia, from photos of the Australian outback to city scenes, landmarks and everything in between.
He is a graduate of the University of New South Wales, where he studied biological, earth and environmental sciences. He has been a photographer for 30 years, and his hometown of Sydney is one of his favorite locations to shoot. His work came to the attention of the Burrow Museum when his son Tim played baseball for Wallace State.
In the exhibition on display in the Exhibit Hall of The Evelyn Burrow Museum, numerous images from the city are featured, including a variety of shots featuring the Sydney Opera House in day and night time and under different lighting conditions, including the Vivid Sydney laser light display. The festival of light, music and ideas broke records in 2016, attracting 2.3 million visitors to the city to see the laser light shows projected on the Opera House and other buildings along the harbor.
Through the exhibit, you will see parts of the Australian cityscape not normally seen in tourism advertisements. The exhibition will share familiar images of Australian landscapes, as well as refreshing seascapes and nature studies that are sometimes overlooked for the stark, red-clay images from the outback.
Zurrer’s photographs will be on display through the summer and can be seen during regular campus hours, Monday through Friday. Admission is free of charge. For more information about The Evelyn Burrow Museum, visit www.burrowmuseum.org or call 256.352.8457.
