Projects:  Place

Places can carry feeling, history and leave traces on you. Julie feels fortunate to have lived in a number of places that have those qualities. These projects celebrate them.

Island :2016  

Comerong Island in the estuary of the Shoalhaven River.

These photos were taken during the flood of 2016. 

Comerong Island is part wild reserve, part farmed and contains only13 houses. It challenges the idea of an island as separate and remote as it is in relationship with the sea, the two rivers surrounding it and is overseen by Cullunghutti Mountain.
