Balmoral Beach Circpan
In this image you can see the the northern harbour beach of Balmoral. The large building is the Bathers Pavilion which is now a great restaurant and café. My family lived in Balmoral for generations.. unfortunately before my time!
This image is part of a series that that I have been working towards for several years.
During my Masters degree I was reading works by environmental author David Suzuki. He has ideas about small communities that resonated with me.
I was trying to find a way to illustrate these ideas of working, living, growing food and learning within a small geographical area. In a way it is a positive insularity.
After much trial and error I combined several existing techniques to create an original photographic approach that captures in amazing detail and clarity a panorama into a circular image. I call these images CircPan (circular panorama).
The images have the look of an aerial photograph, in this case shot from a boat in the Harbour. They are a unique approach to landscape photography.
The image is printed on archival paper with pigment inks, embossed with my seal and posted rolled in a tube.
