Sydney Beach Series + Print Give-Away

I don’t know about you but I am really excited about 2016. Sweet 16 is going to be a year of following my passion and I would love to encourage you to follow yours too.
In the summer of 2015 I started to listen to my heart again, jumped on a plane to the Amalfi Coast and started shooting something that has always been close to my heart, the sea.
Growing up in a small coastal town on the coast of New South Wales in Australia, I lived and breathed the surf culture of the 70’s. Our friends had old Holden station wagons with surfboards stacked one on top of the other, shoulder length hair bleached white from hundreds of hours in the surf and strong sun-browned bodies.

But the surf culture was so much more, it was about freedom, youth, hope, passion, fun and whether you were riding the waves or diving under them to save yourself from being spun over and over in a sand washing machine, it was a way of life.
That way of life has stayed with me like saltwater in my veins and when I moved to Italy in the year 2000 it was the most natural thing in the world for me to hit the beach. A new love was born for the Mediterranean sea in particular Italian beaches.
This summer in Sydney I photographed the beach just the way I like it, packed to the ‘rafters’ with Australians reveling in the sun, sea and sand. It’s this love of the sea and the Ocean that has inspired my photographic series La Vacanza Italiana and new Sydney series Water Jungle.
And to celebrate I am giving away your favourite limited edition print, signed and numbered (unframed) of “Water Jungle” or “La Vacanza Italiana” in your favourite size.
