My work with photography is a remembrance of sorts, not in the way photographs collect memories, but as an experiential reminder of our sympoietic relationship with/in the natural world. Walking, not walking, seeing, not seeing, being-with the world to remember I am of the world - is what makes the work. Place is important in that it matters to know one’s connections, and to understand one’s impact. Based in South Australia I am equally drawn to the coast and desert. The ambition is to understand the patterns of exchange between human and nonhuman life, my own patterning within it and to express country in a discreetly Australian context.
