‘Snowgums at Falls Creek’ by David Corke. The photographer’s work is being featured at Kilmore Art Society’s gallery above Oddfellows Café and Gallery. ​

Kilmore Art Society is exhibiting the work of its oldest member, with David Corke’s photography given pride of place at Oddfellows Café and Gallery as the society’s featured artist.

Mr Corke, 92, lives with his wife Val in a studio near Broadford where he is surrounded by a large area of native woodland, which often features in his photography.

He said he became hooked on photography when given a Kodak box camera at age 10, learning darkroom techniques as an apprentice before branching out into natural history, scientific and educational films.

Mr Corke described himself as being in ‘active retirement’, producing framed gallery prints from the monochrome and colour photographs he has collected on his travels throughout Australia.

His main interests are wildlife and rural history, and he has copied many old photographs of working horse teams and early settlers.

People can check out Mr Corke’s work at Kilmore’s Oddfellows Café and Gallery from 9am to 3pm each weekday until mid-July.
