Gallery 47 - Damian Castaldi

“Our Town” a collection of portraits of some of the inhabitants from Kandos and Rylstone, a cheeky look at the different characters that make up the two towns.  Damian took the happy snap approach, sometimes unawares but mostly with his recipients permission.  The portrait of ‘Deb No.14’ has the air of contempt, her eyes giving Damian that sly sideways look as if he is about to be roused on.  I remember the event well as it was a hot sunny day in the backyard of a Kandos local.

‘No.6 Bruce’ almost with an eerie quality, captured between blinks and before his passing, may he rest in peace.

Another Kandos local ‘No.5 Cowboy’ with his faithful dog has been given the painterly affect, the boldness of the red dirt enveloping the figure while the dog hides in the shadow, the gorgeous mountain basking under the wide blue sky.

‘No.1 Colleen & Caroline’ looking like two tourists snapped while holidaying on the French Riviera, but alas they are in Kandos and happy to be photographed by the wonderful Damian.

It was great turnout for the opening in Rylstone at the popular Gallery 47 with delicious wine from the local Naked Lady Winery.
