“Salt and Sky” Collection by Brooke Holme

Salt + Sky Collection by Brooke Holm // exhibition at Modern Times, Melbourne // as featured on Studio Home

This is what happens when a photographer, with a special eye for the drama of the natural world, can get airborne to study the UNESCO Heritage site of Shark Bay from above. This new collection of large scale photography called; “Salt And Sky” by Brooke Holm opens this Thursday 23rd at Modern Times in Melbourne and can be viewed until the 7th of July.

Brooke is interested in both the tension and bond that exists simultaneously between humans and the natural world. The salt field landscapes that she captures are in her eyes provide “a visually stunning example of nature and human intervention entwined.” Shot from above, the salt ponds and harvested fields create graphic compositions with painterly textures in ice-cream hues.

“At a distance they can be enjoyed as pure studies in colour and composition but on closer inspection the smooth, creamy and powdery textures of the works are palpable as is the sensation of a breeze as it whips up the surface of the ponds,” says exhibition curator and Modern Times director Amy Malin.

It’s really true love for me. For those of you that can’t make it in person you can enjoy virtually here.

Without exception, a movie-like romance always sweeps through me when I step foot in a historical, botanical garden. It definitely the kind of place that people stumble across the love of the lives don’t you think?! Of course it is also a place of education and transformation! I have spent time pondering the effort required to cultivate these living collections way back when….
The conservatories were built in the time when the world felt bigger. Architects and botanists, in a way, attempted to make it smaller by creating these wondrous micro climates in the dryest of places!
Artist Amy Wybrow also gets all caught up in exploring them and the result has been a collection of haunting and kind of “very still” fine art photographs. I simply love her work and the way she has cropped her imagery. Something special!

Take some time to explore them further with her listings on Endemicworld here.

“Pistil – Floral Seduction” by Lilli Waters

By Lilli Waters as part of her "Pistil - Floral Seduction" Series // Australia // as featured on Studio Home

And to continue our unofficial Studio Home “Art Week”, I want to pull your attention next to the divine, provocative photography of Lilli Waters.
I’ve followed Lilli’s work for years now, paying particular attention to her personal projects that so often concentrate on the female form and are always tinged with a kind of tense, sombre mood.
This new body of work called “Pistil – Floral Seduction” has been created to be part of the ‘Phantom Paradise ~ A Tropical Abyss’ Exhibition at Saint Cloche Gallery (2-14th June) in Sydney.

“Pistil’ reunites female figures with inflorescent arrangements using a layered aesthetic.

Finding inspiration through nature, there is a focus on the finer details of the plants, revealing the vitality, strangeness and fragility; the sensuality and feminine allure inherent in the flora.

This series exposes a woman’s deeply rooted connection to nature and fertility and the ways in which she relates directly and symbolically to the plant world.”

Visit in person or explore alllll Lilli’s work online here.

The Forest Cantina Kickstarter project!

The Forest Cantina - Kickstarter campaign to release second creative cookbook! // Photography by Bonny Stewart Macdonald // Wellington, New Zealand // GET INVOLVED !

The internet age has allowed an amazing freedom for the self starting creative and entrepreneurial types among us. It has offered not only a place to collate and be inspired but mainly to share and form a community of like minded people. In fact, I could go on about this amazing and awesome techno phenomenon for AGES!!!

This is how Unna Burch first came to my attention. The Forest Cantina was Unna’s internet HQ where she gardened, cooked and styled up a storm in her Wellington home. Sharing her own experimentation around the delight she took from growing and then preparing her own food for her family. This, combined with her gorgeous aesthetic, deservedly led to a book deal and many of us have already enjoyed leafing through the pages of that first volume.

But now, along with her photographic partner in crime; Bonny Stewart – MacDonald, she is preparing to do another, this time choosing the self publishing road to enable her FULL and unbridled creative control. I realllllly admire this and can see that it is born out of the freedom she is already so used to with her blog and the internet. Why stop there?!

So, with just a couple of days left I would encourage all of you to click through here to learn more about Unna’s project AND the wonderful rewards on offer if you throw your support behind her. I have and think its important to see these personal projects thrive!

Enjoy the peep behind the scenes below of Unna styling and then creating a flatlay before she transforms it into a delish wood smoked salmon salad with green apple and seeds with a preserved lemon dressing. MMMMmmmmm!!

“Tokyo Bloom” by Tim Lambourne

"Tokyo Bloom" exhibition by Tim Lambourne // New Zealand - available online // as featured on Studio HomeHaving spent many a day wandering the streets of Tokyo myself, I love this new collection of work by Tim Lambourne shot on medium format film.
As Tim explains , he was “immersed in one of the world’s most crushing and isolating urban environments and set about capturing a softer side of Tokyo.
“Tokyo Bloom” explores how simple displays of colour and beauty can bring comfort within inner city isolation.”

The show opens at Allpress Gallery in Auckland tonight (15th – 22nd) after which there will also be an opportunity to buy the largescale prints online as well. More info about the show here , explore Tim’s work and enquire about prints here AND definitely jump on to explore The Shutter Pirates project of which Tim is one half of.
