The image is from my new series Falls 2022. It contemplates the uplifting state which some of nature's greatest places take us. Those magical places take us to where the burdens of the everyday is dissolved, at least for a short moment. I hope it compels people to choose to save our natural world with urgency.
Bodies of water have been a spiritual place for many cultures, here the waterfall serves as a restorative place where bodies move in and out amongst a secluded rainforest. The body as vessel is revived from everyday traumas through the process of moving through the cool waters of the native Australian rivers. It is shared and enjoyed by all.
