DESCRIPTION

Terra Firma is an aerial photography series uncovering the harsh landscape of South East Victoria, Australia.

As the pilot, Nick Havill and I cruise along the Victorian coastline, we were struck by the alien-like natural landscape that was presented before us. It was nothing like we'd ever seen before.

Through the window of the aircraft, the ever-changing environment constantly confronted me with its various elements. To the naked eye, the terrain was astonishing, I could see right too the horizon, left and right.

What was just as profound was what fell right below my feet. Looking through the viewfinder, I was able to see right into the cracks and curves crafted by nature that might as well be looking straight through a telescope toward a new world. In this series I want the viewer to connect the abstract forces of nature from above and it's ability to shapeshift in the most unassuming place on earth.
