B Dam Pictures

Spirits presents a series of intimate wildlife self-portraits. Recorded over five-years in the fragile landscape near the Murrumbidgee, the images show the area during severe drought, under threat from fire and in recovery after heavy rains.

These works were created with a motion-sensor camera positioned in a remnant sclerophyll forest, revealing the habits, pleasures and dangers of the locals’ lives. Spirits creates a story about the tenuous existence of native animals on this continent, and by extension, our own fragility.
