‘Near Death’ is a body of work investigating the structural beauty of dying botanical specimens. These objects are very familiar, to the point of iconic in their living and full colour state, but as death nears, the complexity and beauty of their structure is unveiled.
This work was first exhibited in September 2012 at Anita Traverso Gallery, Melbourne. It was then exhibited in association with HeadOn Photo Festival 2013 at Gaffa Creative Precinct, Sydney in June 2013.
The book of the exhibition, 'Near Death + Imagined Landscapes' was a finalist in HeadOn Momento Photo Book Award 2013. Designed by Peter Whyte.
