Elemental Development continues

Micro scene with custom illuminated dam

After 14 weeks in the desert there was, not a moment, but an afternoon of extreme clarity.
A week prior to this I had been sitting in Alice Springs township, furiously writing the three part manifesto that would become, The Elementals.

Everything in my life, to this point, aligned. The first stage of this series relies on micro landscapes which are photographed within full sized landscapes. The design of the set for these micro scene has gone through a fair bit of refinement and testing. Failure ensued, while the drive to reclaim a time long past propels me forward.
