My photographic project, called TRANSITIONS, is set in the Blue Mountains. Transitions is a collaboration with Everglades Historic House & Gardens (Leura), a heritage-listed National Trust of Australia (NSW) property. Everglades Art Gallery is set within the garden itself. Its stunning setting means that Transitions flows inside and outside of the gallery walls, a rich experience for every visitor.
Transitions is multifaceted, and as the name implies, it is about change. I returned to Everglades regularly for a year (2016-2017) to photograph seasonal transformations in the cool mountains climate. I shot details of plants, structures, as well as expansive views: layers of terraced gardens that merge seamlessly with the site’s art deco buildings, and the Jamison Valley beyond. This is another aspect of Transitions: formal design, largely in its original conception, meeting rugged Australian landscape.
Everglades has a rich source of archival materials dating to its construction in the 1930’s. Transitions incorporates passages, memories, and diary excerpts of Paul Sorensen, the garden’s creator.
Everglades is a destination in the Blue Mountains for its grand vistas, gardens, historical buildings, café, art exhibitions and outdoor Summer Shakespeare Theatre.
I am a photographer in the Blue Mountains NSW. I moved to the mountains in 2015 and began shooting locally. I exhibited new works in both 2016 and 2017, most recently at Everglades Art Gallery and Rex-Livingston Art & Objects. Currently I am working with two National Trust of Australia properties.
Prior to my move I was part of a collaborative project at the Eramboo Artist Environment in Pittwater. My photographs hung from trees around artist studios and the Eramboo Gallery. This intrigued the Avalon Palm Beach Business Chamber, resulting in an invitation to show in an art-in-public-spaces initiative (Avalon, 2015). I’ve also enjoyed a Head On solo show in Newtown (2013), and have contributed to AddOn for the past five years.
