Warped Worlds

The world is flat….right?

Of course not…so why do we take “flat”, or boring old 2D photographs?

Look around you, what's missing from these photos…uhm, well, just about most everything that we could see if we looked about.

That is why I have posted these extreme wide angle photographs, each telling a story. All of the images are composited from a number of photographs.

Eagle Point Silt Jetties, East Gippsland Lakes, Victoria, Australia.
Taken at the end of the silt jetty, which is the 2nd longest (after Florida) in the world. Think about a narrow strip of land (silt bank, reduces to the width of 1 lane of dirt road), extending 8km into Lake King. When you stand at the end you see water all around you.

In the photo, clockwise from left at 11o'clock position are: anonymous fisherman, Kim, Barend (talking to Maki in Melbourne on mobile), Denny (sitting), Jessie (dog), Barney (sitting), Misty dog foreground & various positions, Paul viewing fishing lake, Denny, & Kim talking, Paul & Misty disappearing into bushes.

      Hi Anna
      I’d love to cooperate with you or hold a joint exhibition. Just love your images on the environmental theme, I’ve been doing quite a few of my own, slightly different. Mostly I print onto archival canvas, like iot more than hiding behind glass.
