The Australian Ocean
The Australian Ocean is a collection of work spanning the past decade and speaks of Parry’s hopes to inspire and encourage a connection to nature through photography. He believes
animal portraiture is significant for conservation as it enables people to understand and appreciate their unique beauty, characteristics and behaviour. By raising awareness about the importance of biodiversity and the need to protect endangered species, their habitat, and ecosystems, animal portraits serve as a powerful tool for environmental education, advocacy, research and field studies. Inspiring people to take action in favour of better environmental policy.
Overall, it is vital in increasing public interest, fostering empathy and promoting responsibility towards the natural world.
Growing up in Byron Bay, Craig Parry’s passion for photography began when, as a 5-year-old, he was gifted a disposable waterproof camera. While most kids his age were reading comics, Parry immersed himself in early editions of National Geographic. At 13, he spent all his savings on a 35mm SLR, ultimately setting the course for Parry’s future.
Today, his fine art photography offers a unique insight into the world around us. With a primary focus on marine and landscape imagery, Parry connects audiences with the environment. Portraying the obvious as abstract, Parry’s images are simultaneously engaging and beautiful.
