TITLE: "The Migration"
A humpback whale breaches on it way down the east coast of Australia on the "Great Southern migration" which sees thousands of whales heading south to Antarctica, often with calves in tow. Humpback whales migrate around 5000km on average, one of the longest migratory journeys of any mammal on Earth
AUTHOR: Robyn MacRae (Australia)
I live in a small rural town in NSW Australia where my photographic work is divided between commissions, personal projects and being an educator. I am currently undertaking several bodies of work relating to a sense of place, connections with land, as well as the notion of self image and modern representations of beauty.
I am also a Churchill Fellow, I continue to investigate the impact that photography can have on the educational outcomes and community involvement of youth at risk in both urban and regional areas.
I have been drawn to black and white photography from the first moment I have held a camera. The imagery is stripped back to reveal the layers of emotion and reveals so much more in an intimate way.
