Happy to see the light

THROUGH torrential rains and flooded plains, Sharon and Michael Redshaw made it from the Gold Coast to Warwick to visit A Legacy of Light, a new photography exhibition at the art gallery.

Four hours and 10 flooded roads later they made it, and Mrs Redshaw said she wouldn't have missed it for the world.

"Initially, Michael and I were going to come up on the motorbike, but lucky we didn't with all this rain," Mrs Redshaw said.

"It took us four hours because of all the flooded roads.

"I know Paul Doody (one of the artists) through work so we came to support him and I know he and his family have worked so hard on this so we came to see."

Artist Paul Doody said the exhibition was a chance for people to truly appreciate the history and adaptability of photography.

"It's about how photography has evolved and how everyone has used it differently."
