Nanango photographer Keren McSweeney will be giving customers at Kingaroy’s Utopia Cafe something to think about over their coffee this month.

Keren’s works have been selected for the cafe’s March exhibition, and her photographs will be lining Utopia Cafe’s walls from today until April 1.

Keren is originally from Israel, but moved to Australia in 1998 and married her husband Rob soon afterwards. The couple moved to Nanango not long after that.

She’s has been involved in photography for almost 20 years, and apart from running her own photography business she’s also an active member of the Nanango & District Camera Club and has had her work featured in many local media (including southburnett.com.au).

Keren says her first love is black and white photography, but she also likes to work with portraiture and contemporary themes.

Since moving from film to digital in 2005, se’s also tried her hand with creative photography, using Adobe Photoshop software and different photographs she’s taken over the years to create new works that tell a story.

Her Kingaroy exhibition features mainly black and white images, but there are also some splashes of colour and some examples of her more creative photos on show too.

All works are available for sale.

  • Keren McSweeney’s exhibition is on display at the Utopia Cafe at 199 Kingaroy Street, Kingaroy Mondays to Wednesdays from 8:00am to 4:00pm; Thursdays and Fridays from 7:00am to 4:00pm; and Saturdays from 8:00am to 1:00pm from Wednesday, March 5 until Tuesday, April 1.
