About 200 people turned out last night for the opening of Lismore’s first dedicated photography gallery and meeting place, the Fox Photo Den.
Housed in the old Hurford’s building in Union Street, South Lismore, the opening featured photographs from some of Lismore’s finest photographers.
Photographers included Denise Alison of Humans of Lismore, wildlife photography by Meg Gordon, landscape photographer Alex Clarke, artistic nudes by Cloud Nine’s Simon Fraser, and local artist Michael Whitey White.
Gallery founder Natalie Barovsky also exhibited some of her work.
Ms Barovsky said the gallery space aimed to foster a creative spirit based around all things photographic, encouraging sharing, learing and collaborating on projects.
There will be regular photographic exhibitions and workshops as the space develops.
Lismore mayor Jenny Dowell attended last night’s opening, which featured live music from Deana Beau Julia Belle.
