TITLE: Australian Hinterland.
A selection of images depicting one of the multitude of Australian landscape types...our coastal hinterland. Australia is a country of vastly opposite terrain...from our arid, red, dry and sprawling desert lands to our tropical, lush seaboard, but a few miles inland from our coastal region lies the 'hinterlands'. These hinterlands consist of beautiful rolling hills and mountain areas dotted with the odd farms here and there and these landscapes, with the afternoon light dappling over the slopes and ridges look equally beautiful captured in black and white as they do in colour.
AUTHOR: Tracey Jones (Australia)
Where I sit presently in this photographic journey is a culmination of a life that has always been involved in some sort of artistic outlet...painting, drawing, graphic art etc...and now I am able to combine what I have learnt through these other mediums and apply them to help shape, develop and refine the manner in which I express myself through photography.
The content of my work is, hopefully, being able to project to the viewer, how I perceive the world...to be able to see the beauty in what others may see as mundane, to 'see' light and shade and what lies within that light and shade, to see shadows as enticing and intriguing. This leads to how I approach the form of my images...I find the use of black and white photography and the emphasis I place on light and shade draws the viewer into the image, to hopefully see the essence and worth that I have seen in the subject matter.
