IN­STA-BONDI

Bondi beach, bal­anced hori­zons and time­less mo­ments are the hallmarks of pho­tog­ra­pher and writer Tim Denoon’s In­sta­gram ac­count. The North Bondi res­i­dent joined the so­cial me­dia site on the rec­om­men­da­tion of a friend who thought it would suit his in­ter­est in sto­ry­telling through pic­tures.

With fol­low­ers on his feed con­tin­u­ing to grow or­gan­i­cally, Denoon be­lieves the trick is not to be swayed by which type of post gets the most likes, but to keep it gen­uine, have joy and al­ways strive for sim­plic­ity. “I do think is im­por­tant is hav­ing a deep pres­ence within each image you show to the world. That’s some­thing I’ve learned study­ing Zen Bud­dhism: to put your­self in the mo­ment but at the same time re­move your­self from it. Some­how you have to point your cam­era as if you want to em­brace the world, but you also need the equa­nim­ity of a monk to get an image that tran­scends the or­di­nary, ev­ery­day snap­shots that bil­lions of peo­ple are tak­ing on their iPhones ev­ery day.”
