Entry Description:

Bondi Nightscapes is a series of work shot in the twilight of the day on Bondi beach Australia. This series explores our relationship with the ocean as a constant source of power and beauty within our lives. The five images show five different stories of peoples relationship to Bondi beach. The children building sandcastles, the surfing couple packing away their boards ,the fisherman with his yellow bait bag, the late night bathers and the lone man standing in contemplation at the end of the day. As a nation who's inhabitants hug the ocean, water is a central part of everyday life.
