The series Strange Quiet is a meditation on time, an intimate interaction with the ecosystem of the reef, its mystery, its beauty and its quiet fragility.
Immersed underwater we are privy to the cosmic glory found within the 20 hectare coral cay of Heron Island located in the southern section of the Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef system on Earth and the only living structure visible from the moon.
The photographs were created whilst snorkelling as part of the Groundswell Heron Island Fellowship with the Climate Council, the annual residency led by world renowned reef, climate and First Nations justice experts, brings together cultural leaders to educate them about the science, impacts and solutions to climate change.
The series namesake references the Brian Eno composition Strange Quiet from the album For All Mankind, for a documentary about the first moon landing.
The photograph was shot on Kodak Portra 35mm film using a Nikonos V camera and printed on archival Hahnemuhle photo rag pearl paper
