The dreamscapes were all shot in France and originally exhibited at the Grenier de Challoux gallery, France. Working with studio lighting in the forest from day into night the final pieces are a mixture of different exposures stitched together to give an infinite depth of field and amazing shadow detail. The aim was to Create technically beautiful images with the feeling of a surreal dreamscape environment and a suggestion of an off camera narrative. As with all of my comp work I wanted them to have an ephemeral hyper real quality without ever looking like a computer generated image.
These images were all shot at the end of day on Bondi beach in a ten-minute window when the balance of streetlight and daylight made for the perfect exposure. I wanted the images to have the aesthetic beauty of a landscape but still have a human element that tells a narrative about a moment and explores our relationship with the Ocean.
The works were first shown at the Blender gallery in Sydney and then went on to win a place in PX3 and were exhibited in New York and Paris.

using the light through the forest canopy.

The series was Originally shown as part of the 3View exhibition at United Galleries in Sydney.
