empathy and action

Peter Dombrovskis’ exquisitely beautiful Morning Mist, Rock Island Bend, Franklin River is probably Australia’s most famous landscape photograph. It achieved that status because, as the embodiment of threatened Tasmanian wilderness it was enormously influential in the ultimately successful effort to prevent the Franklin Dam from going ahead.A century before Peter Dombrovskis, William H. Jackson’s photographs of the Yellowstone region in the USA led to the creation of the world’s first national park. Carleton Watkins’ images taken around the same time in California’s Yosemite Valley led to President Abraham Lincoln declaring that the lands should ‘be held for public use, resort, and recreation… inalienable for all time.’There is no question that photography has lost none of its power to create, and to nurture, profound empathy for the wonders of the…

the heat

‘In Australia, our public square’s the beach. That’s where people go,’ says photographer Paul Blackmore about the setting for Heat, his photographic exploration of beach culture impacted by a relentless succession of fierce summers.‘When I started thinking about this project, I was going to go around Australia. But then I thought “No, I’m going to stick to where I live – the city beaches I know, like Bondi and Tamarama. I’ll just start documenting and interpreting this culture that’s kind of laid bare under an ever-hotter sun.”Paul’s desire to engage with the existential enormity of climate change’s effects on our lives is not a recent concern. ‘All my photojournalism work, really, has got a lot to do with the environment and the way people treat it. It’s been a…

the anthropocene project

When a 10-15km diameter asteroid ploughed into what is now called the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, the resulting impact left a 180km wide impact crater – and an unmistakable message in the geological record. Marine sediments and terrestrial rocks found all over the world show this distinctive signature of what geologists call the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) extinction event.Beyond the impact crater, the evidence is very subtle. Little more than a thin layer of clay in the sedimentary record, its alien nature is revealed by an unusual abundance of iridium, an element common in asteroids but very rare in our planet’s crust. Log Booms #1, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada 2016. ‘An-thro-po-cene Relating to or denoting the current geological age, viewed as the period during which human activity has been the…

art nude and boudoir: the beauty of it

On your art nude and boudoir website ( gpixart.com.au ), the opening statement is ‘Personalised photo sessions that empower, inspire and celebrate you.’ That implies there’s considerably more to it than photographing women with little or no clothing on. I became a photographer because I love supporting people to feel good about themselves. When I started my photography, I did sessions with friends and they looked at the work and said, ‘Wow – that’s me! Oh my gosh.’ And to me that was incredibly powerful. That I could show someone a way of seeing themselves, some of their beauty, that they hadn’t seen before. So I’ve always approached it in a way that’s very much about confidence building and giving clients something they can feel proud…

deborah’s story

For the blog ‘Deborah’s story’ on Gianna’s website, the photographer asked a client to explain in an email why she did an art nude session:I am a 52-year-old overweight woman and for approx 45 of those years I have been ‘at war’ with my body. Healing from past abuse issues has been a priority for me in the last 10 years and has led to teaching, sharing and healing with others. And still I asked myself, ‘Why after all this, do I still have issues with my body?’ I was still blind to the beauty of it... it’s not skinny enough, tall enough, beautiful enough… it’s just not enough. I love myself and yet I knew that I did not fully love my body. Something had to be done.…
