The consequence of snow
This series explores the beauty and power of New Zealand’s glacial terrain; how a soft, flaky white substance transforms itself into the strongest abrasive force in nature. Over millennia it has relentlessly carved into the landscape, embodying the forces of destruction and creation at the same time. From the craggy peaks lining the vast U-shaped valleys to the silent mist-filled fjords, the result is awe-inspiring.
Flying over the peaks and landing on the glacier is amazing to experience: the space is infused with power. The light, the wind, the constant creaking of the restless ice, all combine to make the senses tingle. In the moments spent surrounded by that imposing landscape, looking out, I felt a deep connection to the immensity of this primordial dance.
Part of this series was shown at my June 2014 exhibition called "Looking Out | Looking In" at Black Eye Gallery in Sydney.
Black Eye Gallery was a prominent gallery of fine art photography located in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst. It has subsequently moved to an online gallery, with plans to expand its international presence.
