beyond Kings Head

This  photo  is from the archives and it was made about 4-5 years ago with a little  Olympus XZ-1, a 10 megapixel point and shoot camera. These type of  cameras have been largely displaced by the mobile phone. 

This  granite/quartz  outcrop lies  between  Kings Head  and the base of the Newland Cliffs.


rock abstract #7

Another picture from the 5x7 Cambo monorail shoot near Kings Beach, Victor Harbor.  

It is a large format version of the 6x6 one in this earlier post. I was thinking more in terms of abstractions and modernism  than just rock studies and snap shots.  I was starting to reconnect with the art history past. A retro Australian modernism as it  were, which referred back  to the rock studies made by John Cato in the 1970s. 

Cato's abstractions developed the vocabulary of his own inner landscape and can be seen as expressions of his subconscious. I have no interest in this kind of transcendent photography that links back to Kandinsky.
