A collection of classic photographs depicting iconic Warracknabeal sites has been donated to Rural Northwest Health.
The framed art was commissioned by Warracknabeal philanthropists Doug and Evelyn McColl and is on display in the new Community Health wing at the Warracknabeal campus.
Mrs McColl said she and her husband saw a display by Bendigo photographer Richard Tatti during last year’s Easter Festival and immediately fell in love with his work. Mr Tatti specialises in night-time landscape photography, using torchlight to emphasise subjects.
The display features three photographs – one of the Brim silos, another of Warracknabeal’s water tower and the third is Warracknabeal Railway Station. All three can be seen in the red waiting area of the newly built wing.
“I just think the photographs have a unique style to them,” Mrs McColl said.
“As soon as we saw them we wanted to get some for the health service,” she said.
“They capture the historic icons beautifully and they look really lovely where they have been placed.”
Rural Northwest Health CEO Catherine Morley said her organisation was very grateful for the photographic donation.
“Doug and Evelyn have always been wonderful contributors to Rural Northwest Health and to the general health and wellbeing of our community,” Ms Morley said.
“They are a big part of our extended family and we appreciate all they do.”
