The Travel Photographer Society comes to Port Pirie


Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery is thrilled to be hosting the first international exhibition of the 2018 Travel Photographer Society Awards photographs.

Port Pirie has been selected, by Founder/Managing Director and Travel Photographer, Ahsan Qureshi, to host this spectacular exhibition, direct from the April judging and Awards presentation, at the Whitebox Gallery, Kuala Lumpur.

Mr Qureshi explained, “I chose Port Pirie as the venue for this exhibition because Port Pirie is developing rapidly and there is a need of international exhibitions here to showcase rich culture and heritage that this city has to offer. Also, the raw and beautiful Flinders Ranges can inspire any photographer. When I visited Port Pirie, I fell in love with the well preserved architecture and I felt that this city deserves a lot of attention.”

Port Pirie Regional Art Gallery is the only location where you can see these spectacular photos, anywhere in Australia.
