Although we visited Tasmania late in 2011, such is life that I have only recently been exploring the photographs taken there. It was a tantalising glimpse of an island with inspiring, changeable and atmospheric landscapes, as well as a brutal history. As a site for both the sacred and profane, it is well represented by the MONA collection of David Walsh. Here are some mandalas from this first visit, I hope to return later and spend longer.
I’ll be showing some recent work, along with my partner in life and art Christopher Lawrie, at the upcoming Head On Photo Festival. The show – called “The alien in our midst … “ – opens on May 17 at Gaffa Gallery in Sydney.
Check out all the events coming up for the festival, which showcases work from many Australian artistic and commercial photographers.
