AUSTRALIA. New South Wales. Freshwater beach. 2000

made me think of the images you see of elephants under water. Water is a great leveler once in its control we are all equal. The fact that the girl is holding her breath and her nose is online with the leg. Which as an elephant would use to breath under water. I would maybe think the image was taken late in the day or there is some artificial light source of a indoor pool

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
