Launched February 1st 2017
Growing up in Canberra allowed Paul to spend much of his time in the local region, there is so much to see and do, from the Snowy Mountains to the coast. Paul has memories of his younger years, travelling with family and friends to a myriad of locations in the local area, some of which he tried to photograph when he was first getting into photography in the late 1990's.
This new project is another of Paul's long term dreams, it is the type of project that will allow him to re-visit many of these places that he knows so well, years on and with a completely different outlook. Paul also has remarkably different gear, a new eye for detail and a completely different reason for venturing back with his camera.
Taking in the coast from Jervis Bay in New South Wales to Lakes Entrance in Victoria and many inland locations such as Kosciuszko, Alpine and the South East Forests National Parks, this is set to be a remarkable journey. Over the next 18 months Paul will travel when the time is right, to create a new body of photographic work of his old stomping ground.
PROJECT UPDATE - 27-11-2017 | Paul Kowalski
It has been a very amazing and busy year and we have really ticked a few crazy locations off the list. The autumn colours really were brilliant this last year, so much colour and a lot of overcast days to capture them in. Tharwa, Michelago and near Bright were visited.
The snow season for 2017 was really big, with great, deep snow down to low levels. This allowed me to get in and around Guthega a few times to find some new snow gums and even find some with really rich colours. It also allowed me to capture the Thredbo River looking quite incredible, with the surrounds of the river blanketed in snow. I have been trying to achieve this style of photograph for at least ten years, very fulfilling to see and capture.
I have also been able to journey to the coast a few times, visiting Bingi Bingi point near Moruya and soon to visit Horse Head Rock, Camel Rock and Glasshouse Rocks, really can't wait to get there.
We will continue to update this page as more details unfold, we will keep you posted..
