‘Deep North’ is an ongoing project which examines interrelationships between ecology, psychology and the differing time scales within the landscapes of Far Northern Queensland. Produced over a ten year period the images chart the teeming surfaces, stilled recesses and storied topographies of these environments. The series considers the superimposition of spatial and biogeographical histories within the landscape creating dialogue between their political and mythopoetic associations.
