My great Aunt Pixie used to tell me that there was 'something in the water' round this area. Pixie lived in the hinterland near Byron and would profess that the people who grew up here were creative and somewhat different. Now.. I do believe everyone is creative in their own special way. Though after traveling and living in a few different places I do think Pixie might of been onto something. At home I feel most connected to the land, the people and the sea. These are the magnets that always draw me back.
This first shoot came together by asking some old friends to get creative and help a sister out. Clare, Kelsey, Sally and I all grew up together in the coastal town of Lennox Head. Today, we're still two lots of best friends and collectively good mates. I can't tell you enough how talented each one of them is.. though the images do some justice.
