Australia, the wide brown land, with droughts and flooding rains. An ancient country that beats to a rhythm that we white fellas find hard to understand how it works. We have to listen to country, instead we dig it up and flog it. Australia is both rugged and fragile at the same time.
In these images I wanted to show the fragile nature of life; how we start to decompose from the moment we’re made. Like us, these cans will go back to Mother Earth. We’re on the same journey.
