Fire Series 2009/ 2010
My environmental photography includes a personal perspective about the aftermath of fire and the change that the conflagration created on the natural environment and the man-made environment. My images are based on my home and surroundings after my wife and I fought for our world during the Black Saturday fires. I attempt to capture the transformation of a new reality in the cold light of the morning after. My photographs endeavour to express the new forms of the destroyed into a hopeful beauty of a new beginning.
