The Bundian Way is an ancient shared pathway, used by Aboriginal people for thousands of years, which connects the high regions of Mt Kosciuszko with the southern coast of New South Wales. Around Balawan is a personal response to two field trips
made to the Bundian Way.

These photographs aim to highlight aspects of the environment that may be ignored. Through documenting small, everyday details of my immediate environment, I aim to call attention to these often overlooked elements of country. A way of appreciating and noticing
the environment on the trip to the Bundian Way, for me, was to be present and to pause. The use of a medium format film camera allowed me to do this, as it takes a lot of time and care to set up one photograph.
