Early road trip in­spires works

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

JUMP­ING in the car for an im­promptu road trip is not some­thing many peo­ple would con­sider do­ing at 4am in the morn­ing.

For South Perth pho­tog­ra­pher Aimee Jones, this de­ci­sion to hit the road and see where the whim would land her paid div­i­dends as she found her­self on the ex­pan­sive sand dunes of Lancelin.

Over­come by the oth­er­worldly qual­ity of the area, Jones be­gan tak­ing pho­tos.

“It was like I’d stepped into a dream­land, not an­other per­son in sight, neu­tral tones and tex­tures so unique it really did feel as though I was stand­ing at the end of the earth,” she said.

“As I walked to­wards the dunes, I had a mo­ment of re­al­i­sa­tion; I re­alised I was fi­nally liv­ing my dream life, I was able to wake up on a Wed­nes­day morn­ing and de­cide on a whim to take my cam­eras, drive to this breath­tak­ingly beau­ti­ful place and take pho­to­graphs at sun­rise.”

Jones will keep the beach theme go­ing when she ex­hibits a col­lec­tion of her Lancelin pho­to­graphs in a new ex­hi­bi­tion at Ki­dogo Art House .

A col­lec­tion of 15 of her favourite pho­tos taken dur­ing that spon­ta­neous trip, she said the ex­hi­bi­tion rep­re­sented the sim­plic­ity and shift­ing na­ture of life.

“I would love for peo­ple to come and see just how beau­ti­ful and di­verse our State really is.”

End Of is at the Ki­dogo Art House un­til De­cem­ber 9.
