This is a short sample of the up and coming project for ND5 in the North of Western Australia. For those of you who don’t know who ND5 is, it’s a COLLABORATION of five image makers being Christian Fletcher, Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt, Les Walkling, and myself. Our collaboration has been working together since 2009. NORTH will form part of a new exhibition early in 2015 which will also feature images from the amazing LORD HOWE ISLAND. Stay tuned for more details.
In December 2014 ND5 travelled to the North of Western Australia’s Kimberley region to commence a project photographing the build up to the wet season. The Kimberley wet is an amazing time to photograph with regular storm build ups and amazing light shows.
Man and machine was tested to the limits with temperatures reaching 47 degrees celsius with 100% humidity. It was all worth it however as the Kimberley didn’t disappoint.
Goes to show with lots of money and enough greed anything is possible. As Flemming said, how far would he be allowed to go with a bulldozer if he wanted to carve up some wilderness.
I’m not having a go at anyone who works for Woodside just those who make the decisions, and most of all our glorious leader Barnett. You must be so proud right now. Thanks to you our economy is going to prosper, the indigenous will be housed, educated and happy (just like what the mining industry have done for the peoples of the Pilbara) and a whole new industrial scar will cover one of our last wilderness areas! Brilliant.
Right now I could drive a bulldozer right through parliament house, but I wouldn’t. I have too much respect for peoples property and the law!!!!
p.s. I’m not having a go at the police either, they are doing a job like the rest of us.
I ask everyone to sit and watch this whole video and tell me your not disgusted with the way Fortescue Metals Group are trying to railroad this aboriginal community to give up their land and culture for nothing.
It sickens me. Woodside are trying to do the same in the Kimberley. Please watch and forward on to your contacts. So now I have another reason to believe that we really are the worst species on this planet. We destroy everything and soon we will destroy ourselves. My poor children, what hope can I give them. Maybe Twiggy Forrest has an answer!
This has to be seen. If you ever wondered what Markie, Flemming and I got up to in PNG you can check it out at the above link. Thanks for doing the video work Muzz, puts Michael in his place. Is that Roddy Thomas on drums???
I just also wanted to say a big thank you to the crew at Clever Starfish web design.They have given me the best service since having them create my two sites. I have made subtle changes over the past months and it has never been a problem. That is what I call service and that is why I recommend them so highly. They are the best in the game and you should be using them for your next project. Rock on guys!
Michael has done it again with another brilliant True North Video. Poor bugger has two more trips coming up very soon. Markie and I feature in this clip on the top of a mountain at Raft Point. Doesn’t it just make you want to go! I’m running a photography workshop on the boat in PNG in November, can’t wait. Oh better get the passport renewed! Man being a pro shooter is the best job in the world, actually it isn’t a job, it is a lifestyle.
Another great video by my brother Michael. Shows off the Gigapan and the fun you can have with it. Now before you guys go, hang on that Sugarloaf shot wasn’t taken with the Gigapan, it is there because the actual image we shot wasn’t that great. Not in quality, that was awesome, in light and feel. It was the wrong time of day. For the video Michael thought this shot looked better, see even with all the best technology in the world if the light isn’t on….
