Photographs from around the world feature at an exhibition by Wollongong couple Jacqui and Dave Price at the Minnamurra Cafe.

THE Minnamurra Cafe is hosting a photography exhibition with a twist.

The exhibition is made up of the works of Wollongong couple Jacqui and Dave Price and features photographs from their travels across the globe.

The Prices' exhibition differs from other exhibitions in its presentation.

"All the photos in the exhibition are printed on canvas, it just makes them look a lot more interesting than if they're framed. Often people won't like the frame and that will take away from the photo," Mrs Price said.

"When they first look at them people often think they're paintings rather than photos.

"The other thing is, we don't manipulate or enhance our photos at all, you see where people have these amazing pink skies and things like that, our photos are just what we see."

While their interest in photography has been developed over a number of years, the couple still believe that simplicity is best.

"A lot of our photos come from our travels, we'll be driving around and see something that we like and pull over and take a photo.

"We use pretty basic cameras, mine is a just a Panasonic Lumix, yet people seem to think you need a whizz-bang top of the line camera.

"It's more important to get the composition right than it is to have the best camera, people buy the expensive ones and just take photos and then wonder why they don't come out great."

The Prices' works will be on display at the Minnamurra Cafe until July 20.
