CONT R I BUTORS
For this issue, Abbie photographed a home in Sydney’s Darling Point, p126. Your enduring creative influences? Pioneering photographer Francis Meadow Sutcliffe and his artistic captures of Victorian life in a UK seaside village left a deep impression on me as a child. I’m inspired by the work of Stephanie Stamatis, and her consistent style and use of light. Where is home for you, and what do you love about it? Bowral in the NSW Southern Highlands. I love the mist that rolls in over the mountains, and the open green fields stretching out of town. Favourite local haunts? Brunch at The Press Shop or Highlands Merchant, lunch at Harry’s on Green Lane or Ludo, and browsing antiques at Dirty Janes. Ultimate travel escape in 2018? Returning to the Lake District in the UK and Amsterdam. On your reading list? Marte Marie Forsberg’s The Cottage Kitchen. What else is inspiring you right now? The writings of Morgan Harper Nichols on her Instagram feed.
