If my low key approach to the local Fleurieu landscape + seascapes has been one of immersion or absorption within the remnant scrub, country roads, and coastal rocks, then the pictures that emerge from this are of the moments in my ordinary, everyday world. They are pictures of vignettes and moments that are fleeting and often missed.
Then it dawned on me. This is not a project based work. Therein lies the problem I have been having. I have been trying to make it a project based work and it just hasn't worked. So I pushed the work into the archives where it lay forgotten. I felt embarrassed by it.
They are simple pictures of the present moment of things that are modest and humble--eg., seaweed and rocks as in this picture. They are of things that are imperfect, impermanent, incomplete, weathered. These are pictures of the present as the seaweed would have disappeared on the next days walk and the rocks would be covered with seawater.
