At the start of 2020 we headed off for Europe, but unfortunately the Covid-19 Pandemic put a stop to all of our 2020 assignments – the Lofoten Islands of Norway, Devon and Yorkshire in the UK, The Cinque Terre and Val D'Orcia in Italy. We did manage to get one night in the arctic circle with Northern Lights before being repatriated back to Australia via the UK! Eight international flights and 46,000 km for one night's photography – not good for us, or the Planet!
Here in Melbourne we were under continuous Covid 19 restrictions from March to November 2020 – some of the longest and strictest social restrictions anywhere in the world. During the first months in quarantine isolation we spent time in the studio, rather than in the field! We completed the next project in our series that explores the relationship between liquids and light. This new, four-part work, called 'Photo-Synthetic' concerns creation and creativity and we have a few samples here for you to enjoy (don't forget to click on 'show all'). For full coverage of this latest body of work head to the ‘projects’ section of the site (Images>Projects>Photo-Synthetic).
2021 has not been any better – as of August we are in Lockdown 6 (stay at home, curfew on the streets, etc) and we do not believe we'll be 'on the road' again for a very long time. In the meantime Gigi has been busy in the studio with a project entitled 'On Balance' (as always just a few examples here with the full project at >Images>Projects>On Balance).
We've also been out in our backyard - Wilson's Promontory National Park photographing the results of the latest Bushfires. For full coverage go to Images>Places>Australia>Bushfires.
