This essay was photographed on Bundjalung Country, focused on colour and form. Inspired by the land and the beautiful clean lines of Mud Australia pieces, I wanted to capture this in the natural environment. With colour as a focus, a palette of warm tones and deep blues emerge as a representation of our skies and water bodies — lakes, oceans, and rivers of our beautiful country.
I was born and raised in Byron Bay, I moved back over a year ago to call this place home again. It’s a place that draws you in, the community feels familiar and comforting.
I have been drawn to creative disciplines and taking images from a young age, documenting faces, bodies, and landscapes. I feel privileged and driven to continue making something I love as part of my every day.
