Capture of the motion of a fluid in space
Sets of dark parallel lines propagate from a distant weather event
A sand bank enacts a transformation into a barrel, creating white turbulent flow
Ripples propagate from the impact of the wave
White foam is drawn into the distance by a tidal current
The surface shimmers with small undulations from wind
Two surfers ride the energy in isolation
Chris Shurman AUSTRALIA
Chris Shurman, born 1987 In Hobart, Tasmania where he lives and works. He studied Environmental Design and completed a Masters of Architecture before working as a landscape architect for several years. His passion for photography developed in his late teens capturing his surfing and hiking adventures in remote Tasmania. His passion for photography became a methodology for exploring both natural and built landscapes. His body of work has influenced and has become a part of his design process. In 2018 he completed the multi award winning Lily Pads pads for the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, which was opened by Prince Edward. This design is a clear example of the role of landscape photography in design. Chris aspires to use photography to explore landscapes around the world in hope that greater insight inspires future generations to be good custodians of the land.
