About the artist

A Sydney based photo media artist exploring the relevance of time in relationship to ideas of beauty and the impermanence of form. In the series ‘discarded beauty’ flowers found on the streets were photographed. The images were made using slow burning magnesium ribbon and long exposure times. The photographs represent the final stop in the fleeting life of these once cherished symbols of beauty. One can only wonder what joys they gave and whom looked upon them in there brief journey through time.
