Justine Taylor. Inspired by an understated part of regional South Australia, full of massive skies and fields of beautiful open space, clean forms and lines. 

Inspired by an understated part of regional South Australia, full of massive skies and fields of beautiful open space, clean forms and lines. Abandoned homes, stone ruins and empty streets are common in the small towns of this region. There are shopfronts from a time gone by that remain completely untouched. Yet the towns are surrounded by fields and plains that have been cultivated and are producing food in expansive quantities for modern-day consumption. 

Towns here once boasted a greater population than Melbourne or Brisbane. The juxtaposition between the decline of the towns and the technology invested in the land is both bleak and beautiful.

The landscape induces a solitude of space. It is reminiscent of bush poetry, despite it being reaped beyond measure for our contemporary needs. Reflection and stillness are wrapped up in the beauty of light and space in this collection.

After 20 years as an Art Director in magazines, working with striking and beautiful images from talented photographers around the world, Justine’s natural progression was to follow her passion for photography. A family move to country South Australia allowed her the time and gave the inspiration to hone her skills. Justine grew up and was educated in Sydney, but always had a natural affinity with open space and outback landscape.
