I’ve always been fascinated with human history, lifecycles and the passage of time and nowhere is this better illustrated than at Lake Mungo where you literally have the footprint of man in the landscape that goes back millennia. Ice age human footprints dating back 20000 years have been uncovered here.

After each rain freshly exposed bones of man and beast clearly depict the cycle of life and death.

These images were made from two expeditions to Lake Mungo in Outback New South Wales in June 2008 and July 2009. I was drawn to Lake Mungo by the story of Mungo Man and Mungo Woman, the site of the oldest ritual cremation in human history.

As a photographer I was drawn to graphic nature of the landscape, which ultimately influenced my decision to print in black and white.
