Living on the Sunshine Coast for the past twenty two years albeit part-time, I am now a full time resident and retired. Black & White images are my predominant attraction when composing the beauty of the coast and when travelling.
My work has been displayed in several galleries and private venues alike, and is currently on display at Ground Waves in Madeira Park.
All images are available in a variety of archival papers and mats in limited editions.
Feel free to browse some current samples at http://www.mariotraina.com
Private showings available upon request.
Still fascinated by our surrounding landscapes from a very young age, I am constantly drawn to capture its beauty with compositions especially in black & white.
Infrared, high contrast and natural light are a few of the tools I use when considering capturing an image. I appreciate the viewers acknowledgment of these timeless works.
Showing at Sarah Wray Hall in 2023 with Kevin Wells, Victor Wong and Masami Bolt.
