"THE SOUND & THE SILENCE,
THE SEEN & THE UNSEEN,
THE BOUND & THE UNBOUND"
IMAGERY CAPTURED WHILE DOCUMENTING AND RECORDING LANDSCAPE THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY & HD VIDEO + SOUND.
" In essence this is about the joyful & much loved experience of attempting to capture the magnetic, raw & awe-inspiring beauty of this land.
I am mesmerised by the light and how it enhances or extracts the textural colours on the land.
For me, it is not about perfection, but rather unveiling the essence of our sacred places.
Elemental and wild, the wind blowing black sand across an empty beach marking time, the wind blowing the leaves of trees in a deep green forest amplifying the silence or chasing yellow grasses across an open field, the movements are textural painterly marks + gestures across the frame, like brushstrokes across canvas."

Documentation - I spent some time filming in Tongariro National Park.
This is a small clip, sitting with Mt Ruapehu, The video is sped up to see the changing colours of light across the landscape. I am interested in the painterly and textural layers of the plants across the land and the way the light changes the depth of the colours. The wind blowing the grasses creates the textural marks across the screen.
