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.
