'Another World'

Published February 13th, 2013

'Another World' is a series of images that I've been working on for the past two years. Many of the photographs were taken in remote, rugged locations, eight or ten kilometres walk from the nearest road. By using a post-processing mirroring technique I have departed from a conventional representation of these landscapes and envisaged a world that is compelling and mystical. As humans we are naturally attracted to symmetry. Yet, seeing perfect symmetry in natural world is as unexpected as it is intriguing.



This image was taken at a remarkably scenic piece of coastline on the Tasman Peninsula, called Cape Hauy, here in Tasmania. There is a relatively short walk (just over an hour, from memory) over a recently upgraded track (part of the new Three Capes walk). Even without the mirroring the sea stack is pretty impressive, rising 122m out of the Great South Ocean. Most people look down on it from the top of the adjoining headland, but the intrepid can get a view from close to sea level by descending down a rock climbers track towards the aptly named Totem Pole (a 60m high sea stack that has a diametre of only 4m - impressive).
