The Fleurieu is a place I know and belong; my early memories of the sea are all from here. In my twenties I came back from travelling overseas and saw it differently. I had the strong feeling that it could not last as it was. As I looked across the city from the hills everything built seemed transitory; uncomfortably perched on a land that had not invited it to be there.

Seascapes are made only of air and water – materials that are both transparent and colourless – and yet seascapes are full of colour and beauty

Photography is a process I love, that starts with an act of observation; looking deeply at a scene, analysing it and then imagining what it might become. When looking at the light changing over water and sky I feel to be looking at something even older than the land. I see something that is always changing, yet which has a deep sense of permanence.
