Tamarama Beach Australia
In this image you can see all of Tamarama Beach from the Bronte headland in the south through to the cliff walk and headland in the north. Locals know Tamarama by the fond nickname of Glamorama due to the very high incidence of models and beautiful people who flock here to sunbake and be seen during summer.
This shot was created during the annual Sculpture By The Sea exhibition and if you look closely you can see many of the sculptures dotted along the headland and beach.
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.
