The Quality Hotel, Ballina (formely known as “The Ballina Beach Resort”) has recently installed one of my images as a feature in their Hotel reception area.
The image is taken from a series of local coastal landscapes, I’ve been working on over the past year or so. These images, where created as a personal body of work in response to the local Ballina/Lennox landscape and it’s stunning coastal scenery. Needing a creative outlet, I begun exploring the coastline between Ballina and Lennox. I’ve been sharing the images primarily through my instagram account (@benwyethphoto) and The Quality Hotel got in touch asking if they could commission a large scale print from the series to hang in their reception. Having previously photographed a wedding at the hotel, I was more than happy to work with them to have the image produced and displayed. Ultimately they selected a long exposure photograph of Lighthouse Beach, taken from the lookout, facing South along the beach to Ballina’s North Wall.
