CASTLEMAINE photographer Darron Davies is trying to bridge the gap between fine arts photography and hot rod photography. 

Davies has an exhibition called the Rodders Exhibition at the Natimuk Goat Gallery which started on April 14. The exhibition is on every weekend, with the final day being May 6. 

Each day the exhibition is open from 10am to 4pm. 

Davies said the project started when he took a photo of his neighbours in their Chevrolet called The Father The Son and The Chev and it was nominated for the Blake Art Prize in 2015.

“I thought Castlemaine is pretty famous for its hot rods so I just started to photograph hot rodders,” he said. 

“They’re more arty compared to the photos in the magazines.”
