'Ordered Abstraction’ is a collection of aerial landscapes exploring the unintended visual and environmental impact that humans have on the landscape. Captured above remote parts of Western and South Australia from the vantage point of various aircraft, The series communicates the environmental impact of mining, extraction and aquaculture in a way that captures attention through colour and form. Each location evokes unique forms of unintentional order coinciding with an element of abstraction, requiring an increased level of engagement from the viewer to elicit the image's narrative.

Ty is a fine art landscape photographer based in Busselton, Western Australia.

Born in Natal, South Africa, Ty became enamoured with the natural world from an early age. His enthusiasm for exploration, attention to detail and education in the sciences, ultimately led to a pursuit in photography where he is able to document the intricacies of the world.

Influenced by minimalist expressions, Ty’s primary passion is capturing Australia’s varied and rugged landscapes from the vantage point of small aircraft combing for graphic and geometric forms.
