RETROSPECTIVE BLURS

Being held as part of the 2018 SALA Festival during August, where I shall present a solo highlight collective of 10 long-exposure photographs taken throughout South Australia over the last 5 years.

Attempting to allow others an insight into my world of living with intense mental health experiences, these images explore the effects of living in a waking dream through the contrasts of the crisp landscapes and the blurred illusory appearance of the clouds and water, representative of my life-challenges. The isolated subjects suggest my disconnect from the world and the isolation from the public at large that I experience in my life.

The crisp detail parallels my precise nature and creativity, which I express through my photography, via the demanding methods required for long-exposure photography. This allows me some much appreciated moments of mindfulness, providing respite from my intrusive internal sensations.

Happy Snappers Fundraising Event:

The ten long-exposure images on display at this exhibition will be available for purchase, to raise funds for my Happy Snappers Adelaide Mindful Photography programmes. All proceeds will go towards the purchase of more digital photographic equipment for the participants.

I am donating the costs of the frames and printing towards this. The café is not taking a commission for the sales of these prints, their generous assistance with this fundraiser is truly appreciated!





Mindful Photography Walk:

Learn how to experience the benefits of Mindfulness through photography. Discover what Mindfulness and Flow are, then put this straight into action as you investigate the Onkaparinga Estuary, the Sandhills and the Port Noarlunga Beach regions. Explore these areas with purpose and a new sense of observation.
