DESCRIPTION

'Beyond' series of aerial photographs takes the viewer to the remote areas of Western Australia and L'arbre imaginaire was shot above the mudflats of Derby. The aerial view gave a new perspective on ancient land forms, and focusing on the details reaped rich visual rewards. Flying over the tidal mud flats of Derby, the mangrove-lined rivers and drainage channels appeared as great snaking branches and intricate tendrils. This ancient tableau of land, sea and sky has been forming for millions of years, in this extraordinary corner of the world. By varying the flying altitude at different times of day, and playing with the sun’s angle I could capture striking colours and highlight unusual shapes and patterns.
