The shift from living in the Sturt St apartment in Adelaide's CBD to the house at Victor Harbor is currently under way. The townhouse will go on the market in mid-January.
All the computers, scanners and camera equipment now reside at Encounter Studio. This means that Encounter Studio will eventually become the centre of my photography, rather than what I do when I'm here at Encounter Bay for a few days every second weekend. What will become secondary will be the urban photography, as that now requires travelling up to the CBD or to Melbourne.
There has been little large format photography done because the shift taking place is teaching up my time and energy. But there is this possibility for an 8x10 shoot that I came across when I was looking through the 2014 digital archives just before the Xmas break for what I'd scoped with the digital camera for large format photography.
I went back and had a look over Xmas after walking the dogs at Kings Beach in the afternoon, but a quick glance indicated that the tree had been cut down. I'll have to check the location more thoroughly. If the pine tree has gone, then that is the end of that possibility for an 8x10.Most of the effort in 2015 will be in developing the Edgelands project for an exhibition at Michael Silver's Photonet Gallery in Melbourne as well as a book publication through Magnet. The book requires more images, a text on water politics, and more images of stressed rivers---eg., the River Murray in the Riverland (eg., Paringa or Chowilla) and the Murrumbidgee River near Hay.
