High Hopes, 2020

'High Hopes, 2020' from a collection of aerial photographs, shot in and around the coastal areas of Bondi, Tamarama, Bronte and Clovelly.
All images were made over the months of March – May 2020, a time in which most of the eastern suburbs beaches were in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With unseasonably warm weather through March and April and big Easter swells, swimmers and surfers alike were looking for any way to carve out a reprieve from the reality of our new existence, back on dry land.
Photographs are printed on an archival fibre based cotton rag with a border relative to the final size.
