Welcome to RIVER&SOL the gallery of Peter McConchie, fine art photographer and author.
Pete began his photographic career in Milan, Italy in the early nineties, mentored by some of the great fashion and portrait photographers of the time.
He learnt a lot, surfed the world and when the gloss of fashion and travel ended, Pete returned home to Australia with a strong calling for the Wildlands of our beautiful country and its Traditional People.
For more than two decades Pete has been recording in photographs and words, Cultural and Environmental stories. His books are published by Penguin Books, Cambridge University Press, Pan MacMillan, Hardie Grant, & Finch Publishing.
His work is featured in Vogue Living, Home Beautiful, Jardan Furniture and celebrated by many of Australia’s top interior stylists. Two of Pete’s portraits have been shortlisted for the 2017 National Photographic Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery Canberra.
Pete was trained as a traditional photographer in film and because of this has a great feeling for natural light. All of the photographs on the River & Sol gallery are proudly recorded on film.
A percentage of sales from the sale of prints goes directly to community members that are in the photographs and to supporting community led programs that embrace health and cultural identity.
