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.
