These photos present the floodplains of the Murray-Darling River traditionally owned by the Barkandji, Ngemba, Euahlayi and Wayilwan nations. The drama of water in the landscape is palpable and strong hues render the story of man’s dependence on it. Tensions exist in this land where superficial beauty from the air hides the ugly truths of stolen lands, stolen water, inappropriate land use and environmental degradation.

Available after 1 May 2020
After starting my professional life as a filmmaker, I now find myself returning to my first love of photography where I try to bring a painterly sensibility to my work. Since taking up my camera again in 2012, I have had numerous exhibitions in the Southern Highlands of NSW and recently won the Landscape Presidents Prize at the 2018 Head On Photo Awards.
