STATUS - Ongoing

Over the years, I have been intrigued by stories of the Australian Landscape, however it is seldom that as photographers we communicate those stories.

The Land of Elemental Beauty is a personal project and series of images that depicts the stories and how drought and floods interacts to create abstract poetry as though a painter wields his watercolour brush across a canvas.

Each series of images in concealed locations throughout Australia allows us to take a step back from our conventional line of sight to provide a unique perspective in the hope it triggers an emotional response.

As a result, we can find value in the landscape through an elevated portal that highlights the interaction of colours, geology, textures, and details which tells the landscapes often concealed story.
