Their Van Diemen’s
Their Van Diemen's Land
Their Van Diemen’s Land is a on going series of photographs that
explore lives and landscapes in a small mining town on the west coast of Tasmania,
Australia. The photographs, taken on a large format camera, capture
four elements of the town: landscapes, homes, people and details from the
past and present. Initially these elements remained wholly independent, almost
projects in their own right, however over time their boundaries blurred. When knitted
together, patterns slowly emerge revealing a rich tapestry of the
community. Shot over the last five years, this body of work is an
intimate reflection of Luke’s experiences, relationships and influences.
The work will continue to evolve with Luke’s regular visits to Tasmania.
