Coogee Beach Australia
In this image you can see all of Coogee beach from Wylies Baths through to Gordons Bay. Coogee is popular with international tourists and caters to that with a range of hostels and serviced accommodation as well as numerous infamous bars! There are many large scale events held on the beach and parklands bounding the beach including a local new years eve fireworks show and more.
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 moored off the beach. 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.
