Australian Photography Awards

Posted by TIMOTHY WRATE on

I was recently given the super cool news today that one of my images have been shortlisted in the Environmental Category of the Australian Photography Awards!
As many of you may know, I’m pretty passionate about the environment, and as a long-time aerial photographer I’ve witnessed many examples of how we are altering the earth by it’s use as a resource - a very relevant and complex issue given how much of Australia’s economy is built on such resource extraction processes. So much of it happens out of collective sight in remote areas and I feel it’s important to bring it to light to have more conscious conversation about our choices and decisions around sustainability and ecological balance and the legacy we are leaving for the future.
The image that was awarded was of a complex ecological issue called salt water inundation - a very real threat to much of the low lying freshwater billabongs across Northern Australia - you can read more about it here.
