'SHIFTING SPIRIT'

Camping on the edge of an ephemeral salt lake in Western Australia I was immersed in observing the cluster of stars nearest to the earth, called the ‘Sisters’.

 

In local Aboriginal spirituality, the Seven Sisters Dreaming involves the ‘Sisters’ on one of their nightly exploits. They were cruising across the sky and far below they saw a lake, and decided to go down and play for a while on its surface. They did this, but soon a man started chasing them, very keen to catch the youngest sister. Very frightened, to escape the man, they had to hide.

 

Comprising 3 separate elements, this image tells the story of the Spirit of the man still looking for the sisters. I created his image by making and photographing a clay figurine whilst carefully crafting some movement into the shot and duplicating some of this image for his shadow. Finding a suitable image with similar movement of the salt lake I then composed and inserted the figurine image. The third element is the sisters hiding places where they found safety, being the small hillocks and islands on the horizon which came from a third image capturing the features of the surroundings.

 

I apply some in-camera techniques to the landscape and the outback in particular for the 'Primordial Landscapes' series. I enroll the use of color, often muted but sometimes bright and garish, to capture the essence of the Australian landscape.
