Sea Sand and Birds
Exhibition Yamba Museum, “Old Kirk” River Street Yamba
Opens Friday, December 9th 2016 at 6:00pm and closes January 29, 2017
After spending years photographing wildlife, snowy landscapes and far-flung Australian lighthouses, John Ibbotson was looking for a project, more close to his home, situated on the North Coast of NSW. Accompanied by his two faithful companions Tessie and Bella, John captures the heart of Brooms Head Beach with a surreal quality that will forever change the way you look at a beach.
Each photograph combines the physical elements of sea, sand and birds into an all-inclusive exhibition and book. Although nature defines our beaches, John’s imagination exploits many of the three dimensional patterns in the sand to create unexpected images.
