This image was taken at Lake Jindabyne after heavy rains in the spring of 2016. It is part of an ongoing series documenting the landscapes, architecture, recreation and infrastructure of the Snowy Hydro Scheme in New South Wales.
Descendants of mares and stallions brought to Australia by British settlers over 200 years ago, wild brumbies have survived the dry outback, snow-covered mountains and thick bushland regions. Australia is thought to have the largest population of wild horses in the world, however, the future of the brumby in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales is uncertain. In order to protect fragile alpine and sub-alpine environments, the state government is implementing a 'wild horse management plan' that aims to cull 90% of the brumbies over the next 20 years. An emotive and complex issue that divides the community.
This image of a rock formation at Lake Mungo is actually a colour image and not a B&W conversion. This is the natural colour of the rocks when lit by pure white LED's from a drone. Some green can be made out on the small bushes to the right.
As an artist in residence in December 2016 at a hotel on Cabarita Beach on New South Wales’s far north coast. I was struck by the region's raw beauty and moved by the spirituality of Mount Warning as an ancient epicenter of indigenous life. Here Mount Warning is depicted in a local mural near Murwillumbah.
Landscape can offer more than sense of space; it can also present a context in which stories are told. As a film director I tell stories with fixed beginnings and ends. This image is part of "Invitation to Story", a series that subverts this paradigm. Landscape becomes a canvas for an untold story, inviting us to participate in its creation and to consider the question of whether the author or the observer owns the narrative.
This image from the series ‘Tokyo Is Yours’ is set in Japan post the Great East Earthquake of 2011. In a quest to understand the earthquake, tsunami and consequent nuclear disaster that unfolded and it’s proximity to Tokyo, I travelled through Fukushima province by train passing railway stations in the middle of empty fields where towns once stood. In some places long grass grew out of the fertile grounds now also fed by the sediment of the sea and the life that preceded the disaster.
This image from the series 'Earth', was taken at Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I photographed the landscape in a way that eliminates the sky, horizon lines, and other normal points of reference; I find this helps me focus solely on the earth's colours and textures, and turns the landscape into an abstract work of art.
We often drive by without noticing but I like nothing more than a glimpse of something that then grabs my attention. My mind reacts; the gears start turning and I want to explore, to discover, to try and connect with what it was that first drew my attention. Within this moment I visualise a final image and then with my camera, create what I have already seen. Canola Fields outside Port Fairy, Victoria.
A cricket pitch painted on a concrete wall on the grounds of Melbourne’s Commission Flats. Hopefully, the kids playing there will notice the beauty and the simplicity of the image; that in addition to the purpose of the place, they also see its aesthetic.
For me, visiting Newtown and Erskineville is like entering a different world, far from usual city life. The surprisingly colourful nature of these doors in these two suburbs is my visual interpretation of this experience. I carefully selected 119 doors to create this collage.
Lake Eyre South is about as flat as the earth can get. Whilst walking out on the dry lake, I noticed a very slight rise in the salt bed, about 25 - 50mm. And there, having been blown and tumbled against that feint shore, the accumulated debris of insect life lay slowly dehydrating.
An Osage saying goes "when the last tree is cut down, the last fish eaten and the last stream poisoned, you will realize that you cannot eat money." Jharia, a town in the Indian state of Jharkrand has been on fire for a century as a result of open cut mining. It closely resembles Dante’s Inferno – homes collapsing into the fires beneath, scavengers and plumes of lethal gas. Our decisions have led to startling results but perhaps it is human nature to be limitless. Coal India seeks to output 1bill. tonnes by 2019
This photo-montage was created with images of Tianjin, China. The clouds in the air were created by fireworks for newlyweds. The city has experienced much displacement since European and Japanese invasions to its present-day rapid urbanisation.
These Altiplanic landscapes are topographical storyboards exploring a personal narrative of identity that pendulates between Australia and Argentina.
Eternal and elusive, silent yet present, a landscape that offers extensive spaces, provides an opportunity to disconnect from the tangible and obvious visual elements one would associate with traditional landscape photography. The conceptual mind can drift and float in these never-ending, shadow less planes and spaces, revealing clarity towards a personal identity.
India, known for her street life, has around 7000km of coastline and the beach is also an integral part of life and culture. This photograph is one in a series exploring Indian beach culture and documenting modern and foreign influences on life in India's coastal communities.
Middlehurst Station: Middlehurst is tucked away in the New Zealand High Country at the north end of the South Island. The sheep on the outside of the flock are being moved around by the shepherd's dogs, while the sheep on the inside remain relatively still.
