Description

Artist Comments

At the Western edge of Australia, and a continent away from the endangered great barrier reef often mentioned in the media, you will arrive at Shark Bay, a less widely known UNESCO World Heritage renowned for its rich biodiversity, cultural significance and unique beauty.With its extensive seagrass beds Shark Bay provides a unique, and essential habitat for endangered turtles, dolphins and dugongs. The commingling of the Indian ocean with this remote edge of the Australian continent creates a constant shifting of the underwater sea grass meadows and sand, which is best viewed and appreciated from low level aerials that reveal the ethereal beauty of these mirages of colors, shapes and textures

Aboriginal peoples have inhabited Shark Bay for tens of thousands of years, leaving a significant cultural heritage, and now face the looming threat of climate change, global pollution and increasing tourism. The natural marine resources are already been affected by a slow and inevitable climate warming and rising sea temperatures.

The aerial photographs offer us a unique view at a moment in time and space of a pristine and remote environment that is facing the impact and devastation of the age of modern humans.

Shark Bay suffered a catastrophic marine heatwave in 2011, resulting in the loss of 36% of the seagrass and releasing between 2 and 9 million Tons of carbon dioxide. As I write this,I am aware that 2024 is again bringing massive coral bleaching in the great barrier reef, inevitably affecting Shark Bay as well. My photographs are a record of what was, what will surely disappear in a matter of a few years“.

As a dedicated artist, wholly devoted to the mastery of my craft, I merge my love for aviation with my devotion to art to capture the beauty of Shark Bay from a distinctive viewpoint. From the cockpit of the aircraft, I soared over the ethereal waters, blending the precision of flight with the artistry of photography.
