I like the idea that a photograph can change the world. A poster of Peter Dombrovskis’s “Morning Mist, Rock Island Bend” hung on my wall in a share house during the 1980’s “No Dams” campaign. It was an image that helped to save a large swathe of southwest Tasmania, helped change a government, and changed the way my generation thinks about protecting our environment.
I guess it also changed my life, planting the seed of landscape photography that’s been growing ever since.
I live and work in Melbourne, Australia. Photography is my reward, my escape, and a good excuse to travel. In particular, the unexpected beauty in urban and industrial landscapes calls to me. I love the inherent themes of decay and renewal. I am currently putting together a project on the theme of urban renewal.
