Still Places is an observation of human scale within nature, in stark contrast to the manicured vistas of city life.
This series represents my two-year journey into residential rural Victoria and explores a personal interplay with the landscape that surrounds the remote location of Moonee Creek Cooperative, Lima East. I take inspiration from communities that live harmoniously with nature and connected to the land – “off-the-grid” so to speak.
Creating this body of work has enabled me to undertake a journey into isolation, stillness and ultimately my rural utopian dreams.
