Speaking to the surface of a lake
Speaking to the surface of a lake, a collaborative and ongoing project with Aaron Claringbold, ruminates on the Australian landscape as a narrative of human impact on the environment, looking particularly at impact post-colonisation. Shot across Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia since 2015 the works record transient and seasonal formations of salt in ancient river systems and lakes, and various direct and indirect interventions of human activity. The images consider the nuanced and complicit ways western society in Australia continues to shape some of its most hostile environments.
