I ‘found’ this lagoon in the middle of a swamp-oak / sedge community after well midnight, August 2020. Iwas joyed to find what you see. Despite the fast-shifting nature of moonlight, I was fortunately able togather the incredible light you see, illuminating the quiet beauty and uniqueness of this place. Hence thisphoto feels like a portrait, gifted. I’m hugely delighted for the opportunity to share that gift with you. Joyneeds sharing! My greatest hope is this photograph might be received as a point of contemplation andconnection with our Endangered forests. 5% of the profit of this print sale, goes to Kurranulla AboriginalCorporation, Jannali NSW.Artist Bio:Pākehā photographer Bryce New gratefully lives on Dharawal Country and acknowledges Dharawal elderspast, present and future and the Dharawal Nation, as the traditional custodians and holders ofsovereignty, of that Country.Bryce’s self-taught practice of long exposure, low light, fine art photography’s energised by his deeppassion for endemic plant communities, low light environments and communicating visually.Early and later influences were his mother’s colour slide photos, low light scenes in films, studying,volunteering and working in conservation in Aotearoa plus inner Sydney streets at night.
