It's been a while since I put together a photobook, but I thought the Mersey Bluff: The marks that make the place, would be a good one to get printed.

Mersey Bluff: The marks that make the place.
My first Gallery exhibition had it's opening night and will be on display at Devonport Regional Gallery until the end of September 2018.
Thank you to everyone who supported me on the night especially those that came from as far away Launceston and Burnie. And thanks to those people who have supported me throughout the whole process but couldn't make it on the night.
Thanks to Tracy Broomhall for the photos below.
Working with the Devonport Regional Gallery team to get my work on the walls. Exhibition opening TONIGHT!
While video or moving pictures might be able to convey something that a still images can't, I find that it's not a medium that I enjoy working in. I've pushed myself in the last few weeks to use it for various reasons, to explore creative options, to communicate something important and to learn new skills.
However it has just reaffirmed for me that I love photography! A still image, a fraction of a second, a printed photograph. In preparing for my first significant exhibition of photographic prints that's a good place to be.
This short clip is a preview for the opening of my exhibition next week, it maybe the last video I every post, maybe.
NOUN: 'the way in which two or more people or things are connected, or the state of being connected.'
Reflecting on this concept, I think it's important to consider that Non-Human perspective. Our perspective is often focused on Our connection to the landscape BUT what is landscapes connection to us? Are we in a dependent relationship with Place or do we offer something back?
I'm still working on understanding this, I don't think there is Just one answer.
